Look at this straggler

Shot today. This is the best one I've ever seen, and after some surfing and looking at what others have mounted- I don't think I have a choice but to add him to the wall.

I often go in other state forums to see things such as what u posted. Reason is I take it for granted some of the things my area holds which are prizes to others. We kill 400-600 Gadwalls a year on our lease here. However, Greenheads are such a prize to us as we may only kill 1-2 a year and some years none, so I know how u feel. So in closing, congrats on the Grey Duck. He is a real good looking one.

Always see a few drake gaddies hang around late. Almost alway real nice birds
....its like taking x-lax when you have a bad cough. It wont clear up your lungs, but it sure stops you from coughing

I'm definitely getting it flushing like that, but shipping it to Leon at Avian Artistry in Kennewick. He did a great job on my harlequin. That one looks good!

Nice looking bird. I hear we have an explosion of gaddies in the Idaho Panhandle this year although it's been mallards and more mallards for us. Our usual gaddy spots are frozen up except for a spring here or there.
