First Canvasback!

Postby wanapasaki » Tue Jan 22, 2013 9:21 pm

Got this guy on Saturday. We had 1 week left and I had seen a few this season but no luck. This guy back doored me, and fell for the spinner, and I dropped him. Luckily the dog was there or this guy would have made an escape. Being my first bull canvas, he's on his way to the taxidermist this week!

Nice looking can, and the background looks pretty good too. Still waiting on my first can. Congrats.
