Hi,
When you attach the feet to a board, what gauge of wire do you all use?
Thanks

Depends on the position of the mount. But you can a smaller gauge wire such as 14 ga.

I have a tutorial on here someplace about mounting a "tubed skinned animal".  It's a squirrel and I seldom if ever wire the feet down.  Instead, I mount the animal and put it's feet in a natural position.  Then I drive a piece of sharpened wire down through the body of the squirrel to hold it to the tree. You never see the wire.

If the truth offends you, then by all means, avoid it.
