Wash the blood of as best as you can and put it in the freezer and i think it would make a nice mount.

Put it in the freezer in nylons, no joke then wait till the end of the season and if you don't get another one get it mounted, also try using dawn soap to clean off the blood.

Any professional taxidermist will get the blood out with no trouble-blood stains should never prevent you from getting a bird mounted! Also no need to massacre the wife's nylon supply. Roll him in plain paper (no dye or ink) and place him in a plastic bag and into the freezer. As was already stated, you can updrade as the season progresses-you can even take several to the taxidermist and ask him to select the best specimen-
There is no help for this kind of insanity. I'm just a duck hunter, and should not be held accountable for all my actions between October 1st and freeze-up. Gordon MacQuarrie
