I'd think about putting a regular sized mallard next to it, just to show the difference.

You know he's gotta have some domestic influence but a really cool bird none the less :thumbsup:

It has to be an escapee........he was skin and bone so he wouldn't have made it much longer anyway. Cool none the less. I begged the client to put a normal one with it but he decided on a single dead mount :fingerhead:

I had a buddy that went on a hunt in OK this year and killed his first green head and it was bigger that the cans they killed.

I shot one similar to yours. I know it's next to a teal, but when i dropped this bad boy off at the taxidermy it was much bigger than the other greenheads there..

Funny, guess my dad and grandpa went and jumped a pond once in ND, their was signs or something, IDK, but it was private but the farmer allowed hunters. Well the farmer had a pond and had pet ducks like that one. Well they thought they ended up jump shooting them and getting chewed out by the farmer for 15 minutes. Kinda funny, prob thought they were big ass migrators.

He has long since left the shop. I can't remember if I had to take the hinges off the door or not to get him out.... :lol3: I don't think I took any "finished" pictures of it since it was just a single duck dead mount.
