my dad shot a drake eurasion wigeon last weekend I kind of regret plucking and eating it but if we shoot another are they worth having mounted? has anyone mounted one before?

not sure if you want to hear this, but you probably wont see another one for ummm... lets say "every"! even though they are being shot more frequently in the past couple of years, they are still pretty rare!! i would say that you definately messed that one up bud. :eek:

You said what. :toss: :headbang:

Just kidding but seriously I have seen pictures of some by past members but propably only 2 or 3. Pretty rare bird by my standards, if you shoot another one I would deffinately not eat it.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

My dad shot one a few years ago at the time it was only the 7th ever reported to D.U. shot in America. He has a standing mount and it looks great with the nice red head on it. I'll post a pic later and man how could you eat that duck man wow shoulda looked it up first atleast!

Washington, Oregon and even California shoot quite afew of them. The ducks unlimited dvd series even have an episode where some guys kill one in California on the Gallo farm. I've mounted one that was very lost and got killed here in Utah...

I mounted one from the Gallo Farm and it was a nice bird. They are never a dime a dozen in the states. I killed one in Texas years ago.

Wow, I hope he was damn tasty. Thats my dream bird, last season there was at least one shot every week during our last month here in California. I hope they continue to show up more and more here in California. I'm thinking if I don't get one in my years to come, I'll take a waterfowl hunting trip to a place that has a good number of them. I'm only 21 so I still have a lot of time to get one. Hope you get another one and mount him. :thumbsup:

my dad shot one around 92 in washington. he has it mounted. i also have a friend that shot one in california and the taxidermist lost his business due to legal issues. the bird was never finished.
why is it every time i go into the woods i feel the need to cut down a tree?
