Overview

Have you ever had an especially memorable day in the field, when your bird dog pointed or flushed covey after covey of gamebirds and your shotgun seemed to track individual birds all on its own? To preserve those memories, many hunters like to preserve their birds - be they pheasants, grouse, quail, or chukar - by taking them to a taxidermist and having them mounted for permanent display in dens or trophy rooms.
But having a bird professionally mounted can be expensive, so these days many hunters are opting to preserve their trophies themselves. And for these do-it-yourself taxidermists, The Complete Guide to Upland Bird Taxidermy is the perfect book. Written by master taxidermist Todd Triplett, this ultimate guide covers all aspects of the art of upland bird taxidermy.

Included are detailed, easy-to-follow chapters on:

* Proper field care
* Bird anatomy and reference
* Tools and materials
* Skinning and degreasing methods
* Methods of preservation
* General mounting procedures
* Flying and standing poses
* Base attachment
* and much more
