New Deadmount Addition

Postby sprigpig1 » Thu Aug 15, 2013 12:02 am

Finished up this honker today that I shot the same day as the Ross goose. Was kinda tough to incorporate it with the ross wich
when I mounted the ross I had no intent on an addition so this was kind of an afterthought. The head of the Ross goose is actually resting on the foot of the honker to give it a little interest and make up for a bird that was already dried.
