    I have done a ton of fan mounts for turkey but a guy wants one with the legs on the plaque and I never did one of those. do I cut them off and fill with preserve just let them dry and and spray a sealer on then mount on board. any help would be great

    Cut off at the knee and inject with Masters Blend. If you don't they will just shrivel up and look like crap. After inject you can pose each foot as desired and let dry for around three weeks

    never had any problems with tendons BUT there's always a first ,seriously I drill down through the bone this removes the marrow then inject,more people seem to be wanting the whole foot on their tail mounts now than before.

    thanks for the help I would have forgotten about the marrow. I froze the legs for now and will get some master blend
