Not to brag but was pretty happy with how the dyeing on the pronghorn turned out.

hook - Dai Riki 135 #10
thread - Danville flat wax nylon olive
core - 20lb mono
tail - moose body
body - 1mm foam olive/olive marker
wing - Congo Hair black
shoulder - pheasant rump dyed chartreuse (1Tbs Rit Neon Yellow/1 cup water)
collar/head - pronghorn hair dyed olive (1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow/2 cups water, overdyed with 1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow, 1 Tsp Rit Dark Green/2 cups water)

Mash barb, straighten shank, brush shank with a little Super Glue and start thread at point above point
