If you want to do a duck, a diver is for sure the best way. You should get a movie or ask a local taxidermist if he could show you some things. Otherwise, taxidermy.net has real good info. Mounting ducks is pretty hard. I have done 4 now and they are just starting to look like ducks. It's nice to have a professional mount to go off of. Pheasants are supposed to be easy but I have never done one. Start off with something you dont care about but make sure it has minimal pin fethers. If you can get a hold of a merganser they are real easy to defat, a lot easier than most other ducks. By all means do not start with a woody or a teal. They are extremely hard, I have degreased about 10 birds now and I tore the hell out of a woody. Your also best off buying the indivdual things needed for the mount. A kit just has general sizes, if you buy the mannikin individually, you can pick one that is close to the exact body size. It makes it much easier. PM me if you guys need anymore help and I will try to help ya the best I can
