I think that woodies look the best in a natural setting. Find yourself a nice knot hole from a tree and have him sitting on top of the hole where the old tree limb has fallen away. If you like to show his wings, have him preening himself with his wing fully extended. These knot holes are not hard to find. I marked at least 20 of them on fallen trees where I deer hunt for later "harvesting" just for this very thing, mounting wood ducks. They look AWESOME with a woodie hen sticking her head out of the hole and the drake sitting above her! Can't beat it! If you don't understand what I mean by knot hole or limb holes, let me know and I'll get many pics posted on here of woodies mounted and a pic of a knot hole that hasn't been used yet.
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?
Safetys, use them: If you can see red, you can get dead!
