The Puddle Duck Mounting Process

Cypress Slough Taxidermy’s Puddle Duck Mounts and other waterfowl pieces are of the highest quality. We meticulously clean and flesh each bird prior to mounting, then individually move each feather into position so that the bird is posed in a natural position. All duck legs and feet are injected to give them a natural lifelike appearance.

Puddle Duck Mount: Preparing Waterfowl For Your Duck Mount

  • Even more than big game, ducks and geese require careful handling and storage if you want to preserve them for taxidermy work. Delicate duck feathers and bones can crease and break much more easily than hair or hardened antler.
  • After shooting DO NOT ring the duck’s neck. DO NOT gut or pluck any feathers. Either tuck the head under a wing or lay it over the back. Keep out of sunlight and in a freezer bag (keep a freezer bag with you in the field just in case). Freeze as soon as possible. Broken bones are fixable but missing or broken feather is not to keep the duck where it will stay untouched until you get it frozen.
  • If storing your mallard in a freezer for long periods, wrap the legs and head in wet paper towel to prevent freezer burn.
  • Nylon stockings are good for transport from the field only, NOT for storage since they don’t prevent freezer burn.
