Sprig Pics?????????

Postby GOTSPECKS » Wed Mar 07, 2007 9:34 pm

Anyone have any pics of sprig lookin like they do when they're locked up droppin out of the stratosphere in almost a vertical position, head up, locked hard. Want to get one mounted in that position but can't find any pics. :help:

That position looks weird, maybe if it was facing the viewer face to face.

Really? I love this position. Not everyone has a mount like that on the wall.

Are the top two positions something that you would see a greenhead doing, or is that a pintail only mounting position?

green heads have their neck bent over when they are landing so they dont look like that. umm im assuming they are similar when they are taking off so i guess you can have one doing that. never seen it though. thats how im mounting my first pintail though. it shows off their colors really well.

:thumbsup: ..sweet mounts....as for me.....they are very realistic....i've seen ducks takeoff and Land in some weird postions...once seen a Mallard dive in the water like a diver...i guess if you out there long enough, you'll see some strange things... :rofl:
