    FYI, looks like it's in good condition, so a rug might be in order.
    Didn't have to track it but I had to drag it a fair ways so one one side of his body had a bit of a rub on it. That part of it will be up against the wall according to the taxidermist so not a big issue.

    When in doubt, just pin it.

    Ganders in Surrey used to be a great place to deal with; just havenít been there in a few years. They did an owl for me and it turned out great.
    I'v had numerous birds done by Rick Gander and never been disappointed, does a great job. You'll have to tell your friend to expect to pay more for a waterfowl mount compared to a rapture or upland game bird mount because waterfowl have more fat and is more labor intensive (takes more time to get all the fat off the skin).
