Im thinking of trying my first pheasant(flying wall mount).My question is,is there a flying form made by McKenzie or is there just one form made used for flying or standing?There catalog shows a standing bird but doesnt mention flying.Thanks for any help.

make your own form from excelsior. It´sgood enough, because you do not need any difficult shape for pheasant. Be carefull to make it about 1 cm smaller (in all of the measures) then the right body. It´s good to wet excelsior before forming a form (it goes easier). Than make a form by whipping wet excelsior with some yard(twine). The final form must be hard (for easy fixing of wire in it) with smooth surface(made by yard). That´s the easy way to make your own form.
Buy a flying pheasant kit from McKenzie. It comes with everything you need for the body except the wire for about $20.00.
