I agree that eider hens have some nice character and make great mounts. Other than being able to dang near fit a frig inside their skin once skinned eiders are fun birds to deal with. Good job :thumbsup:

See Doug? Even Brian agrees that a relaxed skin is possibly worse than one that is tight?

I think that is where many beginners have issues with divers, especially sea ducks. It is hard not to want to fill that GIANT void you have once skinned out with a huge manikin but what comes out is all that needs to go back in :thumbsup: Keep alot of pins handy :lol3:
