Seems like the only time I can get good photos of ducks is when they're flying on my wall.

Not sure. Taxidermist was scrathcing his head too. Other than the pin feather being exceptionally long there are no other pintial markings on it.

Widgeon will get a longer pin feather with age. That is by far the longest I have seen though.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Duck Hunting is ALL about the bag.

Ya, I thought it was a pintail until it hit the water. I just feel fortunate that I didn't tear the bird up and was able to have it mounted.
