Shot my first wood duck this morning. :getdown:
Unfortunately it is the ONLY duck I got. I always told myself that if I ever shot a wood duck, I would mount it, but this one is beyond repair. Good head shot, but the bottom bill was blasted off and plenty of damage to the eyes and "plume" thingy on the back of his head. Did leave the hen though so hopefully there will be more in the future. Didn't realize there were woodies on this pond, I'll have to put up some of those wood duck boxes to encourage nesting.
