sticky idea?

Postby side-slippin » Sun Sep 30, 2012 2:46 pm

without a doubt we are privileged to have some absolutely amazing taxidermist as members here on the chat, the work that some of y'all do is incredible. And although y'alls skills are amazing, i believe that choosing the "right" specimens are what takes a finished mount to the next level. Of course there are sentimental reasons for getting certain birds mounted, but what I'm talking about is a list, possible broken down by species, of what Y'ALL look for in a harvested bird that helps them turn into a beautiful mount for the wall. just an idea...

It has certainly been covered, and a good idea. The number one thing to remember is any bird should be mature, latest in the season available, and onethat hasn't been hit very hard. Field care is important as well. As far as what to look for per species is all perspective. Perspective starting from the hunter, then to the taxidermist. Once you open the bird up, you will certainly find more, from pin feathers to wounds.
