    I did mine a little different than the norm. If you look against that far wall, you'll see them hanging next to the door. I wanted them to look as though I just came back from hunting and hung them up (before cleaning). They weren't even 'prime' birds which, to me, adds to the look of just ordinary ducks waiting to be cleaned with all the prime birds mounted on the walls of my game room. No backboard or anything, just hanging on a hook on the wall. Anyway, I'm happy with it :)

    This mount was done by Keith Hendrickson..aka..boykinsbuddy.
    The wood framing is similar to a "wing" used while hunting a curtain blind. The main function of a wing is to break up small waves around the curtain blind and prevent water from entering. He mounted the birds and made the decoys attached to the wing as well. We have plans to add a few more birds in the future. All the birds on the mount were killed from the curtain blind we hunted.

    Here's my one and only deadmount I plan on doing as of now. It will have a pair of all the North American puddle ducks in it when completed.
