To mount or not????

Postby richyrich307 » Thu Dec 27, 2012 8:22 pm

Cool mixed bag I got today. Every single one is a first too. Never shot a hen pintail, or a drake shovler or a canvasback or a hen buffy. Pretty happy I was able to check so many off the list. I was thinking of mounting the can but not sure if it's worthy. He seems to be pretty good size but not as white as others I have seen. What do you guys think????

Yup. I'm taking over my bufflehead and my brother's hooded merganser when I get a chance. It does look a little shot up. Maybe a standing mount would look best. I'd maybe explain it to the taxidermist to see what he would suggest. Good looking bull though. I thought they were long gone a month ago.

Broken and missing wing feathers can be replaced...Feet look a bit shot up but those too are repairable-not going to be a competition bird so no problems there and again-blood should never prevent you from mounting a bird! How many really prime late December canvasback drakes are you Honestly going to shoot?! I say mount that bird and enjoy him, he looks like a real stud to me.
There is no help for this kind of insanity. I'm just a duck hunter, and should not be held accountable for all my actions between October 1st and freeze-up. Gordon MacQuarrie
