A few years ago I purchased a beautiful wood duck mount. It also had the necessary federal paperwork. I am moving and have decided to sell this mount. I need to know is that paperwork tranferrable? Do I simply have to give it to the buyer for everything to be legal? Or do I have to go through some process to officially transfer it? I would appreciate some advice in this matter?

You could log on to the USFWS website, find your area office and ask them. They'll have the final say if this is ever questioned. I would also recommend documenting your conversation, name, date, etc.
...that's the response I got when I asked the very same thing to my local Game dept. I have a permit to sell captive reared waterfowl but if I sell them mounted to a retail store does the store owner need a permit also? that was my question. Then the Fed's in Portland Oregon also said "Good question, I don't know" I then called the Fed's in DC and the head of the committee that makes the rules said "Good question, uh uh uh I would say uh uh yes the other party needs to obtain a permit to sell" He made up the rule while on the phone.
