    Just finished up this Gould's. They sure do eat up the time. IMG_1132.JPG IMG_1148.JPG IMG_1151.JPG IMG_1136crop.jpg
     

  3. Very nice! I recently attempted my first duck mount several days ago and posted in The beginner forum. It just so happened to be a pintail in a similar pose. I just posted more pictures after drying. I notice that my tertials and scapulars are not in the right place, compared to your mount here. Do you mind sharing how you get them in that position? Thanks for any advice.

    I took off a couple shifts from the FD to try and finish up for the year. Been a productive week. Had several firsts for me. 3 diving surf scoters and my first hybrid.

    Thank y
    Thank you Kenneth , I look over your post in the beginner section congrats on getting your first one mounted . I take several carcass measurements and try to put back in what I take out . That's very important if your form is to big your gonna fight it . And if any of your attachment points are off by just a little it can throw everything off . Flesh wash and dry thoroughly makes grooming a lot easier. And use a lot of good reference of live birds . Hope this helps

    Wow nice! I love a dead mount! Thanks for the compliment. Got a couple more to do still.

    Also in case any of yall go to use this particular habitat from McKenzie. You can't fit a whole duck in the hole. I mounted the hen and then had to take a hacksaw and cut the butt off.

    Nice work every one.!

    Great looking dead speck JB1.. You have got to show the finish products on those end tables -- SSAAAWWEEEETTTT!

    Brooke you are bad to the bone!! Awesome head on that guy hope he dries that smooth!!

    Made a backboard today for these mallards and pinny. Still have one more greenhead to add and I think there will be a shelf and he will be laying on it with his head hanging off

    Added the shelf and a laying dead mallard. Now to let them dry, tweak 'em, add the leather strap and call it done. One more flying mallard and I'll get to tackle a Grey Fox with a hoodie drake in it's mouth
