Everytime The Waterfowler makes a post I find new poses that I want for myself, if I have my way I'll probably put my taxidermist's kid through college.

If I get a nice mature ross or snow I'm getting it mounted like the one on the far left in the last photo, the one acting like its maple leafing into some decoys. Too me, probably one of the most unique poses out there.

Here's a couple more Blue Geese. I've got 17 mounted, kinda liked them, especially the Interphases.

waterfowler,
two questions. Is every other bird you kill banded? and Can I get adopted and come live at your house?
I can pluck birds or something to earn my keep.

In all honesty, I don't put a band on a bird that wasn't banded to begin with. I just like to mount some of the banded ones as a tribute to the dog that retrieved them or to the memory of the hunt and the friends I was with. I'm quite lucky when it comes to banded birds. Something that started over 40 years ago when the first duck I shot wore a band.

My first Banded Blue Goose... Duck hunting has been bad here in AR lately... at least the geese are still out so I skybusted a low flying group and got this one.

I killed one that looked exactly like that back in 2007.

I know right? Pat has some amazing work and thousands of memories that go with his birds.

I'm thinking of doing the following pose with my adult snow I've got.

Agreed, I had heard that they would do but never believed it until I saw a canada do it. Pretty dang cool to watch.
