    I killed a very nice canvasback near the end of season and want to get a wall mount. I really like some of the "cuffed" mounts I've seen. Could you guys post some pics of your cans for me to see or what you recommend?

    If "cuffed" means "cupped" then a wall mount usually requires having the belly out instead of the back to keep the top wing from pushing the mount out too far from the wall and exposing more of the support wire. Not a huge deal with most divers since they don't have the back colors like most puddle ducks do anyway. Here's a few examples of what I mean (not all Can's), and.....even though a base is used on some of these, they can be done for the wall as you can see how the back/side would fit against the wall with the big feet and belly are out into the room........or straight out from the wall...

    I like the last pic of the redhead and the drake in the pair of cans.

    The standing mount was mine and the wall mount was a buddies. The redheads and the cans were shot the same season.
