As nice as the Argentine beef!

Postby AAR » Sun Oct 27, 2013 8:40 pm

Had the giant wood rail finished and around for awhile but with so much customer stuff looming, I put my head down and kept it going. 15 birds mounted last week, so over the weekend I decided it was time to complete the base once and for all. Really happy how it turned out, got a very very cool idea to do on the next strap do New Zealand birds that has never been done before, keep your eyes out for it!

Top row is fulvous whistling duck, giant wood rail, and white faced whistling duck.
Bottom left is a rosy billed pochard pair, then a knob billed duck hen.


Thanks for looking!

Eric

Be sure to check out the new exotic and rare game bird page on Facebook. 260 likes just this week and tons of stuff, especially wild shot hybrids and mutations. If you have something cool, I know I would certainly like to see it and imagine with so many signing up, they would too, so brag a little :beer:

Looking at those shell boxes and wondering, are you shooting lead down there? How does the ammo compare to factory loads here?

Bill, Maybe I shouldn't answer Erics question but he can add to this if he wants......I have been down there a few times and yes.....you are shooting lead.....don't know how old you are but if you were as old as me it takes you back to the old days as #5 lead will kick their ass!!! I myself have had very very few problems with the shells working down there.....so for the most part they rock.

Doug, I guess I'm old too, because I shot lead (here in the States) in number six, and it was a load that worked on almost anything.

As I recall, neither Eric nor I had issues with their ammo, or beef, or wine, or beer, or shooting over 15 species of birds.

We shot lead 5s for ducks and I think 7s or 8s for doves and perdiz. Don't recall on the pigeons. Everything cycled well and fairly clean.
