Wow guys, these are some killer pictures of some Beautiful birds. A man can only hope to see one in a lifetime of hunting like the ones you guys have been lucky enough to shoot. Especially that widgeon :bow:

Clearly, my five year old could tell that. I was expecting more than what an amateur could come up with, being a self proclaimed specialist.

Look forward to your picture


I am an amateur, sorry to disappoint you for agreeing with someone that was correct. Wasn't going to lie to you with some trumped up explanation.

My statement was directed toward my local fella and taxi not you. I follow many of your posts and take in all you say. Learn a lot from most if not all of your posts. Again my statement of the amateur and self proclaimed specialist are not directed at you.

I do apologize, I am typing all this on a phone and was very vague in my post.

This bird to me has a lot color still. The chestnut chest and side pockets. Bird I shot had no color. All blacks whites and grays.

I would be curious to see the bird you mounted waterfowler. I haven't seen another like it. Took it to a bird specialist and all i got was a color mutation out of him.


Never said I took anything to the waterfowler............

Your right I did, but we are talking about HE, not the waterfowler with he being the local guy I met with in my area.

Pat, I'm more than a little surprised there is anything left on your bucket list.

So many places so many miles and so little time! Have Sweden, Iceland (again), Romania and Holland on the horizon. But, B.C. is an interesting and diverse place.
