Look at the head. As far as any other difference... I'm not sure. This is a fantastic mount and one awesome bird. This is my white buffalo. Thanks for posting!

Sure, I see the difference, but I didn't know where the name came from. Like maybe, the guy was hunting in an area that usually never gets widg's but maybe a big snow storm drove them down or something and that's where the name came from..... just curious.

It's just genetics. The name did come from west coast hunters calling newly arrive Wigeons after a storm and that name stuck to some degree. Ornithologists do not recognize it as a seperate race or anything else other than an anomalie, like a two inch wide neck ring on a Mallard. Unique looking birds however and nice trophy.

Apparently, I need to examine the birds that I shoot a little better. :huh:
