So I had a mallard done by a taxidermist, not gonna mention the name, and it looked amazing. So, when I shot a goose with a neck collar on it I THOUGHT that would be the place to go again. I was wrong. I came back a year later to get the bird and it looked like S***. Before I could even say anything , he said " yeah I think the collar stretched its neck out a little. "
anyway, I was too nice of a guy to say anything , so I paid the guy took it home and it looks so bad I didn't even want to display it.
Now. I tweeked it's head position a little bit, and it looks a little better. But after thinking about it, I'm pretty proud of that bird and I just don't like the mount. The body looks nice ( standing position on a log) but from the neck up it looks terrible. Skinny neck. Head seems weird.
Any of you have any ideas on my next step?
Do I take the collar off? Shoot another bird?
Anyway let me know what you all think. I will get some pictures up.
How do I get this collar off ?
