Mountable Birds

We get a lot of questions from clients wondering if the bird(s) they have harvested are able to be mounted and restored to an admireable quality.


Here are a few tips on how to properly care for your bird in the field and after the harvest.

  • Birds can have broken wings and pellet holes in their bills and feet
  • Birds can be soiled with mud or blood
  • Keep birds out of direct sun light as much as possible when in the field
  • Bag bird(s) in air tight plastic bags and freeze as soon as possible
