On this morning's hunt, I got a gorgeous / pretty much perfect hen mallard that I want to mount with a drake mallard... a drake mallard that I haven't got yet. So my question is, how do I store the hen in the meantime and how long will she last?
I have always just wrapped my ducks gently in newspaper and kept them in the freezer until I am ready to mount them. That said, I have never waited on a mount like this before and the max time I have had a duck in the freezer has been a week or two. Hopefully I will get a drake mallard the remaining part of this year or next year (I've gotten three or four this year but none of them were mountable) but it might be a few seasons.
Any advice / thoughts / suggestions would be most appreciated
