I cut the plastic off and save the brass.  Next, I take a hot glue gun and fill it in all around the top of the beard.  If you need a pic, let me know.

I used the Spur Trophy Mount Kit from King outdoors to do mine.  Displays the fan, beard and spurs nicely.  It was the first one I did myself and I thought it came out really well.  I bought mine from Cabelas.com.  You can view it there.  Hope this helps.

I really liked what Everdayhunter had shown with the fan and artwork on the plaque.
 
I have some mounted birds but mostly I cape the bird from the head down to the tail, stretch it out, and borax it to cure. They make pretty good displays and you can learn to cape em and cure them pretty easily.

Hey Bobby, as your neighbor down here in Acworth, let me know if you ever need a hunting partner!  That is a beautiful collection!
