I posted a thread earlier today about the bear mount I finally got today. Most everyone agreed that the fern was a bit much. I stopped at Michael's today and got some fake moss. My question to the taxidermy savy is there a right way and a wrong way to put this moss on the rocks and log of the mount? Is a hot glue gun the best route to go? I just don't want to mess something up. Any advice is appreciated!

Hot melt glue will work fine.

I user hot glue for things like that. Moss on rocks is usually very thin and not very high. I would put some on the log and maybe some were the rocks and log meet each other. Look for pictures of things like that and get an idea for something you like. get creative with it.
