Something new

Postby PetriDuck » Sun Oct 27, 2013 2:42 pm

Thought this morning was going to be another cruddy shoot but ended up with this boy! My first Can! I was so excited I called my wife and she said "great, we are not mounting it". That ended my rush, so here I am posting to you all :hi: Shot in Colusa, CA over naturals.

:clapping:
Delish as well... The 2 I got last year were the best tasting of my season
Trust me. 8 hours in a pond with leaky waders, to not fire a single shot... Is still better than work.

This is very depressing and de-masculating. No offense bud, but men deserve to have dead things in the house. Congrats on the Can and yes they are good eating if you get the marsh out of them. But they are even better on the wall.

Well, to her defense, I picked up a greenhead mount last weekend that was done and a few months before that, picked up a sprig. There is no wiener tucked in this guys legs :fingerpt: Money is tight and thats why she busted my balls about it lol :fingerhead:

Enough said bro... I have a buddy that has a wife that won't let him have dead things in the house so it always strikes a nerve with me when I read things like this. But obviously this isn't the case with you. Again, congrats on the can :thumbsup:

I also got a ration of crap for my first one last year cause the topic was "love them red heads"
Needless to say I was schooled for a few days from these guys.

HAHA you guys are too funny and thanks for the likes! Luckily my wife is used to mounts. When we were dating, i showed her my grandfathers house and the guy has a full room of mounts. Full mounted lion to elephant tusks, so a few birds is not a big deal :thumbsup

Yeah my wife says same thing, by the time taxi is done with it she's over initial pissed offness. Start saving man cause thats a trophy.

Well played sir. We can tell who has been married the longest.

Her: "Is that a new mount?"

Me: "No, I had it in a box in the garage for a long time and just brought it in"

The good news is, I'm a fast learner. I've been married for about 15 months now. :thumbsup:

My son got one last year and already had two birds at the taxidermist so we had to eat it . Roasted the whole bird soooo good
