what is a good average neck length for a flying drake pintail mount.. appreciate all
The same length as the neck you remove. Just taxi the skin forward.
taxi with the meter running ... taxi.... thats funny
Not sure what you call it byrdman, but i taxi (move) the skins forward and pin them in place.
Taxi = moving something from one place to another.
Dermis = skin
"Taxidermy" - moving skin.
7 1/2 to 8 inches. If unsure just cut long and one mounted and ready to attach head test fit and see what looks right. Don't over stretch .
I hardly ever measure my necks anymore. I attach my wire and necking to the body first and when mounting insert that combo into the skin. I just leave the necking a little long and right before attaching the head I check the neck skin length and cut the excess off the necking and then install the head
Oh it would be same for a flying as it would be for a standing or sitting pintail
“taxidermy” was a term used by museum curators when classifying and catagorizing study skins into subspecie groups... to arrange skins is correct but they refer to allready stuffed skins....by moving skin around on a form is not what “taxi” refers to....must be millenial slang huh
