Habitat Taxidermy and Mounts
Whether you’re looking for a duck splashing down into the water or a covey of quail under a prickly pear cactus, our mounted animals at Cypress Slough Taxidermy can be added to custom lifelike taxidermy habitat. Every game animal can be customized with natural landscapes and poses, giving you a personalized art piece that will retell your hunt.
Field care tips for ensuring the best quality duck mounts.
After shooting DO NOT wring the 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 are not so keep the bird where it will stay untouched until you get it frozen.
If storing 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.
We can do a lot with most ducks regardless of the condition the bird is in but remember if feathers or big areas of skin are missing, I can only try to cover it up but I can’t recreate what isn’t there.
