Just need to pick them up

Postby phutch30 » Fri Oct 07, 2011 10:16 am

My memento’s from my Cali trip in Jan
Planning on adding a drake green wing and a drake blue wing (soon as I can get one) to this

Fully plumed drake shovelers are actually a really good looking bird. To bad they get such a bad wrap for being stupid and tasting bad. :biggrin:

First mounts? No I have several others mounted along with a selection of big game.

The plucked shovlers i brought back from Cali tasted great. The ones Ive eated around here have been mixed so I dont shoot them anymore.

I'd definitely put a fully plumed shoveler on the wall, they really have some great color combinations! Nice mounts!

Thanks Tim, cant wait to put them on the wall. Be glad you didnt come out goat hunting this year! The area we hunted is horrible. Numbers are down and all the bucks Ive seen are really small.
