Default Duck skull mount

So I've seen a few picture around (even on this forum) of European mounts of duck skulls. Can anyone tell me how to DIY one?

I have been wondering the same thing, I seem to remember seeing a pretty cool skull mount in a shadow box type thing with three different ducks on here, I wish I could find that thread again.

With that being said, this months issue of Field and Stream has an instruction section on how to make a duck mount with the skull and two leg bones... Go pick it up, it's pretty cool.

You need some dermestid beetles and a whole lot of time to build a colony that can eat the flesh off the bones before it rots.

Default Skull mount photos

Here are some photos of the shadow box you may be referring to. John Glezos, aka Longgun, worked his magic on my Son's first Goose, Swan and Sandhill crane skulls to put this together. I would highly recommend you send your skulls to him, this is by far one of the most prized possessions of my son and I.

not to mention, the little boogers STINK!

... you mention rotting like its a bad thing, when in actuality some prefer it over the dermestids.

I figured he had a wife/girlfriend/sister/mom that wouldn't be as "understanding" about the smell as the rest of us might be.
