    What is the best way to attach a mounted squirrel to the base. I've been running wire up into the legs but sometimes it breaks the hard form. Would id be easier to just epoxy the squirrel to the base, or is that a poor idea?
    Thanks, Chuck

    I just mounted one the other day and I pre-drilled the feet with a small drill bit and ran my wire up through and hooked into the top portion of the leg prior to mounting. It seemed to work well, but I'm sure there will be other suggestions.

    Matt, Thankyou. That is basically the way I have been doing it. I do a lot of squirrels on ellzey and Van Dyke mannikins. I also wrap a lot for special poses. Maybe I should find some forms that are already pre-wired. Any suggestions anybody?
