    Hey all,
    Got my first banded Greenhead at a bingo this year and I think i want a flying mount to show off the band but with some sort of corn stalks too to remember where I was. Has anyone seen any mounts like this? There are a couple in a Google image search bit not much. Thinking the bird over the stalks with 1 stalk holding it up

    A Buddy on here asked harsens if they had any signs laying around they gave him a old
    Refuge sign. he incorporated into his pintail mount.

    I have a bunch of drift wood that's been in the family for 3 generations. so that's what all my mounts are going onto.

    You can go on line to Birdman Studio taxidermy - they are out of Colorado I believe. He has pictures of mounts in many different configurations.
    I think in order to get corn stalks into the mount diarama you may have to go to a table top style mount with your bird suspended over the stubble

    I think I'm just going to add some real stalks behind the wall mount. It should look ok

    You would probably have to treat it so it Dosent mold.
