Mountable ducks

Just shoot a nice can and bluebill and would like to know if the pin feather will be to bad to mount or if you guys think they look good enough

They look ok to mount to me. Just be careful with them. Tuck the head under a wing before putting them in the freezer.

id say the can looks alittle young, the upper feathers and head look a little patchy. the blue bill looks good though, just my opinion.

They both look like juvie birds to me. The Can definitely is. The Bill lacks the defined vermiculation across its back...might be an old bird still in eclipse plumage.

For comparison...

x2. I shot a young black duck. Everybody called me stupid for mouting it, but it was my first one.

By the time them scaup get to Florida their backs are solid. Looks a little early to me. Pin feathers may be an issue but it depends on the Taxidermist too.

If you are mounting to remember the 1st ones you shot I would go nuts... if not... like others have said... them are a dime a dozen and I would wait for something better. If you go to a good taxi he will only mount certain birds. If not good enough they will turn them away.

If you are mounting it because it means something to YOU, then mount it. If its because you want the best looking specimen, then you can do better.
I mounted my first woodie. Not a great specimen, but I've gotten to tell the story of shooting it countless times.

x2 My mounts are important for me and serve as a 3D reminder of the memory from that hunt.
