Harli diving for dinner....

One heck of a dead mount combo....Pair of Barrows, Scoter Slam, and a harli on top. The pedestal was 42" tall :eek:

Nice concept on the pedestal. Wish i had the time to create something like that. Gives me some ideas though. Good work as usual.

Thanks Pat. It was hard to get a decent picture of it being you get a different look from each side and from the front. Luckily it was easy to carry.... :grooving: :no: :grooving: I love when I hear..."do something different that you haven't see before" :thumbsup:

I just decided to do two big batches of sea ducks at the same time......and for some reason I always seem to mount one or two from my yearly outings with friends on the salt. I promised myself, no harli for comp. next year....we will have to see if I can do it :lol3:

Yes, Brian, I'm embarrassed to think how may Seaducks I have in the freezer that are skinned and frozen in blocks of ice and awaiting my attention.

That sea duck piece should have been a competition piece Brian. I agree about the bufflehead. Nice head on that bird, and the body looks real smooth.

Agree on the bufflehead, nice and smooth. One of my favorite birds. In 1961 I had my first duck mounted by a full time taxidermist, a Drake Bufflehead. Paid an exorbitant, at the time, fee of $10. Had to mow two 2+ acre yards to get the money. Still have the bird.
