widgeons

Postby wspiller » Sat Dec 02, 2006 9:20 pm

Today was my first triple!
Just got a new gun and wow, im sold now for sure, dropped three widgeon drakes two of them are in great shape and the one has done been breasted out.
I need help though, im going to get at least one of them mounted if not both if it doesnt cost me my arm and my leg...
So....
How should they be monted, im considering the dead mount but don't really have the space so any other ideas besides the norm. would be great
Thanks in advance and have a SAFE and great hunt!

wigeons are among my favorites and there is no wrong way to do them. Flying shows the well marked wings and standing lets the head fluff up and really show pretty. I suggest you pull out those old hunting magazines and find a couple pics to take with you to the taxidermists shop. Since you have 2 you can do them flying, one back out the other breast out, the dead scene would let that work also.
There is no help for this kind of insanity. I'm just a duck hunter, and should not be held accountable for all my actions between October 1st and freeze-up. Gordon MacQuarrie
