Pintail mount

Postby Duxhunter » Wed Mar 13, 2013 6:27 pm

Hey guys i was wondering how would it be best to mount a pintail he was a big
drake but i shot and broke his wing so should i get him sitting or would it matter? Thanks!

It really depends on the taxi. Are the primary and secondary feathers shot up? If so, a standing mount. If the feathers are good to go, bones can generally be wired as a fix for flying mounts.

This one was just posted last month. If there are no obvious feathers missing the wing the bones can be rebuilt. That is what I use chopsticks for.

Type in the word "pintail" duck on google and look at REAL pictures of them flying, sitting, swimming, standing sentinel ect.. Pic out your favorite picture and either print it out or describe that pose as best as you can to your local skin mover... :thumbsup:
