DIY Pheasant Mount

4 posts in this topic

I kept a pheasant from my SD trip last weekend that is in good shape for a mount. I'm going to try van dyke's flying pheasant mount for the $17. I was wondering if anyone has tried it and had any tricks, or valuable info b4 i start.

I believe they also have books or tapes you can use to help you for a small fee.

I use the Danny Owens Video in class. Excellent tape. Dont bother buying a kit not needed..

You can get the Flying mount tape at VanDykes order a Danny Owens body and a pair of good tri color eyes when you get the tape.they have it all on their website. Watch the tape then you will see most of the remaining materials you will either have at home or at the local hardware..20 mule team borax is all you will need for preservative.

I emphasize the need for picture refference in my class I would advise it when you put the mount together.. Replication not interpretation is how you will get balance into your mount.. Drop me a email if you have any further question or C'mon over to Ely and take the bird course at VCC...

I had one mounted last year and the guy doing it told me to put it in a empty bread bag. This bird had a long tail, around 22.5 inches depending on how you measured and long spurs.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
