I agree I'm trying to decide what pose to have it mounted in.

Congrats man, for that is a bird of a lifetime for sure. Check out Birdman's Mallard/Pintail mounts on his site which may assist u in your pose. He has done a great job on many of them.

Guessing the taxidermist by just his initials......M.S. or E. S. by chance? Please refrain from name respecting sponsors, but I am curious if I'm right? :wink:

By the way, very pretty.

What a beautiful mount does that come with a glass case over-the-top? I would be afraid of dog or a kid would knock it over too I would have to have my own trophy room for that one. Probably an armed guard and area cordoned off with ropes too

I have it sitting up high where it can't get knocked off. If it was under a glass case it would be HUGE! Probably should, but won't ever do it. Thanks for all the compliments.
