So I will be doing my second Sandhill crane ever soon (first was a rug). This is a full mount in a dancing pose.... Both feet will be secured to a strong base and submerged so once it's there they will be solid... It's fleshed and ready, has been awhile... My supplies are in, have been for awhile.... Ever have that one of the year ya just can't get motivated to try? It's this and a brocket deer. (Same customer) Lord love him he's my best but he brings this TN country girl been doing it a year some doozy surprises. Anyway here I set... My questions are, do I pull the tendons just like a turkey ( manhandle with pliers, cuss and cry alot ) or is there a simpler way? What size threaded rods for the legs? AND THE WINGS... My main concern, open in a standing dancing pose.... What size wire will last and work good? How do I secure it with good strength in the form? I've done a turkey strutting but no big geese, flying, etc. I don't back down and I'm sure I can do this but I just hope to have decent answer ideas before I thaw it and get in trouble.
