No I didn't. I mount all of my own birds.(But I sure will take that as a compliment) I have hunted with Pat a couple of times now and as his post said he "let " me shoot some shovelers as we don't see spoonbills in full color like these. I don't think pat usually shoots shovelers when you hunt with him but he understood my desire to shoot some nice ones so I kinda teased him with the title!
In a few days I will post a hen pintail i shot with him also( thought I was gonna get a good ass chewing for that until I told him I wanted a mounter.......still cost me $10.00 for the camp cash can!
