    I posted on my state flyway forum but it was suggested that I try over here as well. Might as well get the experts opinions.

    I shot this guy this week and wrung it's neck. Now I think I might want to get it mounted. The skin is not broken on the neck but the neck is totally separated. Any input would be appreciated as too problems this might create to the taxidermist or any limiting factors it might create by having done this to the bird.

    Also if anybody has some specklebelly poses they like I would really like to see them. I know I want an incoming flying pose to show that big black chest off. Thanks for advice and help.

    The broken neck will not be a problem. Feathers damage is the issue, so if it was wrung without damaging the feathers (kind of hard to do but possible) you will be just fine. That is a dark belly..........
