Nice mounts where do you live? Also how can you legally have them?
I work in the ornithology lab at a college, I wish we could get someone to mount birds for us. I bet we have over 500 in the freezers. Right now we rely on undergrad volunteers (and me when I have extra time!) to mount them. I've only mounted them as "museum specimens" which are just lying on their backs to be stored in drawers and don't take that long to do because there's no finish work involved (no painting, no eyes, etc). It would be nice if we had more realistic standing mounts. All of the standing mounts we have were mounted in the 30s and 40s and have not aged well!
