Upland Bird Taxidermy: Preparing your bird for your grouse, quail, turkey or pheasant mount.
Even more than big game, ducks, geese, and upland birds require careful handling and storage if you want to preserve them for taxidermy work. Delicate feathers and bones can crease and break much more easily than hair or hardened antler.
After shooting DO NOT ring the bird’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 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.
