I'll be moving down to the gulf coast in a couple weeks, and will be doing some diver hunting from a kayak/layout boat in some of the shallow flats down there. And so I'm expecting at least one or two of the thousands of redheads to land in my spread sooner or later and dropping one.
I've been hunting in Georgia for the past couple years, and it's rare that we get any redhead, pintail, etc. And so I'm pretty excited for the opportunity, and I know I'll be wanting to mount one or two if they are worthy. Problem is that I can't be spending $200+ on a mount from a taxi (college student), and I thought it would be fun to try it on my own.
I was wondering if you guys could share your opinion about if it would be worth it if I started trying to do my own birds. I have seen a couple videos, and of course it looks easier than what it really is. If it was, everyone would do their own mounts.
I know it takes A LOT of practice, but hopefully I'll have plenty of birds to practice on. If any of you guys have any tips, feel free to chime in. Thanks guys
