My goose just got done. He is the first lesser that I have killed.

I did the snow in the background. That's why the beak looks like garbage. Whitetails and Waterfowl did my goose. They are in Murphysboro, IL. They do awesome work. Real nice too!

Here is a pic of my first tree rat. Like night and day compared to waterfowl. So easy!

Mount looks good, I would never put a sky carp on my wall though.

I'm just curious, what does a nice mount like that cost?

I'd mount a "sky carp". A big mature one, sure..why not? The blue phase adults look pretty good as well. Why not mount one? They're 100 times harder to decoy/kill than any duck.
By the way, nice Canada.

I think they look good. This is a Ross goose, aka.."mini sky carp" to some. To me, a real and unexpected trophy that day.
