Wood Duck Pose Advice

I'll post a link to the story, but I want a great mount of this duck, showing off as much of his color as possible. It carries a decent amount of sentimental value for me. What do you guys think would be best? Thanks!

Here's the link:

Re: Wood Duck Pose Advice

well I have a couple ideas. there's the standard duck standing on say a log/driftwood with his head in a "rested" position. Or since you jump shot him, and has so much sentimental value, see if you can find a taxidermist that will do a mount of the duck "flushing" of the water... http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&so...ck+mou&gs_rfai=
I just googles wood duck mounts...

Re: Wood Duck Pose Advice

That one is kind of neat! I was also thinking of getting an old weathered wood duck box, and getting the male mounted sitting on top of it, and possibly having the female with her head sticking out of the hole. Would the taxi need to mount the whole hen to do that, or just part of her, say from the "shoulders" forewaerd?

Re: Wood Duck Pose Advice

not sure what you want to spend, but how about a shelf mount with acrylic water, habitat around and both ducks in the mid-take off position? water a little rippled from their sudden departure....wings half stretched, wow, i can see it already
nice ducks btw! If you don't have a taxi in mind, let me know, my friend is great with ducks and very reasonably priced.

Re: Wood Duck Pose Advice

search the internet...here is a website with beautiful pics and poses of ducks flying or standing.....www.birdmanstudios.com and on the left hand side of page are the options to click on......if you see what you like print out the picture and say to the taxidermist this what i want...... i want something like this but with my modification to it... it will cost more than just your average every day pose depending on how crazy you go but it will be what you want...... i tell all my clients if you want something other than your average mount to bring a picture or describe something to me and i`ll take it from there

Re: Wood Duck Pose Advice

Good lord, those ducks from birdman studios are crazy nice. Colorado is a long way to ship a duck to have mounted, but his work is super. I'm torn on what to do. Do you guys know of anyone, or do work yourself of that quality, for that price? I know that's kind a of a subjective question, as everyone would probably think thier own work is great. I don't want to offend anyone, but I want the best mout I can get, without spending a small fortune. Thanks for the help!

Re: Wood Duck Pose Advice

i would send you some pics but i`m still unpacking stuff from the move yet, we bought a house that we have been remodeling and some land, and i`m trying to get my new studio built behind the house. so finding pictures of the ducks i have done isn`t easy right now.....And to answer your question... yes i do quality work, i`m in a position that i don`t have to push mounts out the door to pay the bills right away so i take my time with my mounts and my customers.
