Weird growth on leg

Postby berniebiz » Sun Jan 26, 2014 3:10 pm

I went out today and only shot 1 greenhead. I dont even think its edible because it has some weird growth on its leg.It would probably hurt my teeth.

You should probably have that removed. It doesn't look malignant but better safe than sorry.
All this for a bowl of borscht.

You might not have to wait long. Take me for instance. Waterfowl hunting nearly 40 years and have yet to collect a band.

Nice bird BTW.
