It looks like a nice mature drake I don't see any of the black feathers mixed in on the areas that should be white he should make a beautiful mount. Where do you hunt? That's about all we shoot around here this time of year is whistlers and I have to shoot a lot of them to get one like that usually only 1 or 2 a year that are fully mature drakes.

Goldeneye. I'd say it's worth mounting. Not my first choice of duck but it's a good looking drake. :thumbsup:
