So say you shoot a bird and it's a beauty that you want mounted... And you winged it and it's still alive. How do you dispatch and still keep the bird fresh to mount??

Bite him on the skull until you hear a crunch. It kills them right away.

So I'm not the only crazy one that's good... Been doing exactly that! Was just like wondering if there was anything easier that doesn't damage the bird externally at all. Thanks wal

I scare it to death. No marks, and painless.

Take a large wing feather and poke it in the back of the head right under the skull, does quick work with minimal damage. Or... Shoot a little better...

Lay it down belly down, put your knee on its back and crush.

That's how I finish all my birds. Better than wringing neck, but you don't get to say you bit a ducks head.

Put it under my arm so that the bird is between my side and my bicep. Squeeze the bird until it goes limp.

X2 on big birds like geese, divers, sea ducks. Puddle ducks I squeeze the bird in one hand. Thumb and middle finger under the wings and compress the heart. 15 seconds and they are out.

I've mounted several birds with wrung necks. I really bruises the skin making it very likely to have feather slippage. Also make is weak which can result in tearing during the mounting. Do your taxidermist a favor and don't ring necks.

Drowning a duck is a lot harder than it sounds.

X2, little duck brains for breakfast never hurts. Hold em by the feet after you bite em though, they tend to bleed pretty good after you crunch em
