What other waterfowl related things do you like to do

Im pretty much hopeless when it comes to waterfowl . I like to run a waterfowl site , work with dogs, taxidermy birds(I just started that) and of course decoy carve.
here is the what I am working on now - the other side is not painted yet and yes i will be lightening up the head

Is that one of your foamers? Do you actually use them for hunting or do you put them out for sale and display? They look too good to hunt over.

For me it was really a question of putting my hands where my mouth is. In other word I would be paying good money for birds that in my opinion looked stuffed rather than real. Does that make sense? I decided that I at least needed to give it a try.As far as the carving thing I really enjoy it but it is not an impatient mans hobby. I seem to pick things to do that when Im done I look at my work and say "I could have done better" and therfore always raise the bar. :toofunny:

Do you have a step by step procedure for the mounting of the birds/taxidermy? Mybe a link to some where that give info on how to do? I think that a few of the guys and gals would be interested in trying it on their own if they had some "how to" info.
