    Brooke, have you ever tried removing goose wings washing drying separate then wiring and attaching fresh to mount.... works great and makes the wingless skin more manageable... you can even do wings separate wash dry wrap wire then freeze them until you mount bird then.....

    This method works great on turkeys also.

    Byrdman. Yes I've done it. Did it on that Swan last year. It does help. I guess the biggest thing for me is that I just don't like fooling with the bigger birds. Seems everything is just so clumsy. Especially when it comes to assembly. Plus our shop is small and I share it with all of Randy's deer mounting stuff.

    Y'all gotta remember....I do Taxidermy for fun money. We use all our Taxidermy money to pay for hunting stuff. We're blessed to have Randy's pention and my salary (soon to be pention) so for us Taxidermy is basically a hobby. With that said hobbies are supposed to be fun....and for me anything bigger than a Mallard isn't fun.
