As a lot probably know I was lucky enough to hunt the west coast season before last and get a bunch of euro wigeon and a hybrid. Well, had a coffee table display case made up, and finally had the time to squeeze mounting them in on the past few weekends. Their not finished out but a little more on the workbench style for the time being.
First up was the super super stud euro drake. I had an artificial head that I made for a world show piece that would have won the puddle duck division had my pintail not have. I saved the head for whatever reason I don't know but waiting to shoot a euro myself. Soon as I shot this guy that was the first thing I thought of, finally get to use that head!
Round two was the euro x American hybrid that was a great blend of the two.
Here is a side by side shot of them.
Now for round three, he was the "least stud" of the three drakes I shot but no way I wasn't going to mount. The others were just awesome and impossible to beat.
I've done the hen and another drake in a cool pose that most have probably not seen before but want to wait and post up after their all finished and I get the snow/ice scene done. Stay tuned..
Thanks for looking,
