I need some pics

Postby poi96 » Tue Dec 12, 2006 6:12 pm

Can you guys please show me some pics of a hooded merganser flying. For those of you who have done it, is it hard to get the crest to stand up straight?

never seen one fly with it up it is used to lure in females while dancing around the water and just keep pushing the feathers up i use a piece of wire for this part they stay up easy for me but somepeople use caulk but i dont like it

So pretty much it doesnt look real good when it is flying? I have only mounted flying birds and really dont want to experiment on this one. No guts no glory i guess.

Never seen one with the crest up while flying! I had one buzzing me this morning, didn't know whta he was until he landed in the decoys and extended his crest! I can't recall even seeing a pic of one with his crest up while flying.

I saw one at a local sporting goods store...sorry no pic though. It was a cupped bird with its hood crested. It looked descent, but not near as good as a sitting pose with the crest fully extended.

I could only find one pic of a hoody flying with his crown up. Granted he is taking off at the time. Also a few more pics. Hope this helps

:thumbsup: i have done several at the customers request, like woodies the same way..nice display mounts but not realistic. it depends on if your customer is a hunter or a shooter.
