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
When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid.
