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.

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
