Attaching duck head with dead mount

Discussion in 'Beginners' started by joebrinkley, Dec 8, 2013.

  1. I have mounted 7 ducks flying and standing, now I am going to do a mount a duck dead mount. I just have a few questions. I have a shadow box panel, I know about the feet, but do I attach the head to the panel, and if so how, or do I let it just hang and dry. I really don't want it to be swaying back and forth until it is dry. And the last question is do I need to wire the wings. I would thank so, but just really wanted to know what other do. Thank you so much. Joe.

    Common sense would be to wire for them to hold there shape. I use a framing nail to keep the head firmly attached to the panel........ It's just not rocket science here. Think about your flying birds, do you attach the head to something to keep it from swaying back and forth?
