I just finished a speckle belly mount. When I was looking for a pose I thumbed through my Ducks Unlimited Magazines. I usually go there first at some point they have usually hi-lighted each species giving you multiple close up pictures. Good Luck.

Ross goose with snow covered winter wheat on a cedar base. I built the base for under $15 and about 3-4 hours work.

Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?

Quarter inch plywood cut to whatever size you decide for the base. This plywood was attached to the cedar base frame I made. I then marked off the "planted" rows, about 3-4 inches apart. Then I drilled small hole's about 2 inches apart on the marked off rows. This is where the wheat will be "planted". I went to my local hobby store, Hobby Lobby. In the flowers and plant section they carry a bag of pre dyed shaved cedar. I made small stocks and taped the bottom together. I made many of these and they kinda look like a small broom. I put them in the holes and glued them in. I then took garden soil and mixed in some latex caulk. Makes a soil paste. I used my fingers to spread it around the base and around the wheat stocks. Attached the goose through predrilled holes. Then I used a fake snow and sprinkled it on the wheat field. You can get it at the hobby store or from a taxidermy supply. The snow will set down on the wheat and look pretty real. I then used a clear coat rattle can to lightly over spray the snow. Be sure not to get it to close or it will blow the snow off. I lightly misted it from about 16-18 inches.
Thats about it. I was more than pleased with how it turned out.
