# 1 Inspecting your bird.
You have just killed a bird that you are considering having it mounted? Check it for quality.
Let your bird cool down before wrapping it up for the freezer.
# 2 Wrap and freeze your bird.
The secret to a long lasting bird in the freezer is sealing your bird in multiple layers of plastic bags.
You can use 3 zip-locks to a few 13 gallon trash bags to prevent air exchange and freezer burn damage.
Migratory Bird tag
You must fill out this tag and send with your bird(s).
# 3 Shipping your bird.
Use a Styrofoam cooler with a couple of ice packs. Then place the cooler inside a box to ship. Ship out on Monday or Tuesdays by UPS or FEDEX 2nd Day Air only to avoid weekend delays.
Never use the Post Office to ship.
We will contact you as soon as your bird(s) arrives.
