I had a friend of mine make my first bird for a wall mount, he put it on his web site http://allseasonstaxidermy-maine.com/Testimonials.html. I have since shot several nice birds, I had the biggest mounted on an identical plaque, but i had the legs freeze dried and hung on hooks right and left of the beard, My wife hates the feet. I had him do a breast mount on the same type of plaque, this time I had him just do the 1 inch segment of the legs with the spur on it.
If you look on hif photo gallery page he has other plaques he uses for multiple beard birds.
Not really sure if this helps, I like the way they look, I am currently in the middle of moving, but may be able to get pictures of the others if you want.

Birdbuster I was going to send you a PM but couldn't figure out how to put pictures in it. Try to put pictures here. I do these fans my self. They are not just dried all the meat is removed so no bugs or worms. Send me an email rfr5734@yahoo.com be glad to help you out.

The first display board I believe is from Treerooster and I thought it was awesome so I have plans for something like this someday. The second one I came across a couple of years ago and thought it was a really cool. I might use the second one someday for a really special gobbler or a bad bird that deserved a little extra respect.

This is one I made last year for the bird I killed. It's a larger replica of one of my calls made out of cherry wood that turned out real nice. I got the idea from muddpuppi on another forum.
