Goldeneye and Shovelers

Discussion in 'Bird Taxidermy' started by loomisjosh5, Oct 23, 2006.

  1. Can anyone tell me anything about these two types of birds. How are they to mount, is the skin very thin, any special do's or don'ts I should know. I have a drake and a hen of both species and going to mount them together some how. any advice would be appreciated. Josh

    Golden Eyes, as well as most other divers, are fairly tough skinned and easy to flesh. Lots of fat but it melts right off. Shovelers are a little thinner skinned so go slow and you'll do fine.

    I did a hen shovler with no problems, just take it slow
