(Q): How do I properly package a bird i'm interested in mounting ?
(A) As soon as you kill a bird that you are interested in mounting, place the bird's head on it's back or under it's wing. Place in a plastic bag(ice bags or garbage bags work great) and DO NOT seal until the bird has cooled down. Prior to placing into the freezer seal the bag and remove as much air from the bag as possible. DO NOT wrap in newspaper. It will pull the moisture out of the bird and cause freezer burn very quickly.
