    have a customer wanting a 2 duck dead mount with birds hanging by the neck ,tried to tell him that typically dead mts are head down showing wings and fluffed necks,but he wants a "strap" mount as he calls it. anyone have done this before and have pics.

    I did a pheasant one a few years ago. I put body wires in and then stuck them on the board then just cocked the head down. After they were dry I put the stringer on. Basically the stringer was just for looks. Didn't support the birds at all.
