I leaning towards a straight on mount cupped with a little pitch to them I know Blake can do it I have seen his work. I had 6 other birds done by wild about fowl about 7 years ago but blakes turn around is quicker and by everything I see the detail is there too. Looking forward to getting my birds to him.

You definitely want to check out some pics to get a general idea of what you like, but Blake can also help you. He can give you a good idea about how the duck will look best. Blake is a pro and he will make sure that the mount looks great. He has done a bunch of stuff for me, and it always comes back better than what I was expecting.
