Well I started this one other time and it went like wild fire. Post up your favorite picture and the one duck that you really want to kill this year.

My goal this year is to get a Drake Pintail.

I got my Pintail drake last year after 10 years of waiting for it.... I'm after a canvasback next.... we don't get them where i am so i think it will be a few years before i get to drop that on off to get mounted

I was hoping for a CAN somewhere in the Mid Atlantic this season, but that won't happen this year. Harli's and Can will be closed on the Atlantic Flyway for 2008 - 2009 :eek:

So I will be trying for a Drake Goldeneye and Ringneck for the wall.

Good Luck

I got my first pair of pintails while I was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington in 2003. Oh yeah I forgot to mention both were banded!!!

That is a nice display and congrats, I have a few bands just never a pintail that was nice enough to mount. When i was younger it was all about putting the "hammer on em" I didn't think about bands or mounting. Young and dumb.
Now I am looking for a double sprig but who isn't.

My actual luck was driving home to Delaware from Fort Lewis, Washington with the pair in a cooler of ice in the back of my truck with all of my belongings! I was really nervous. I am totally happy with the results!!! Thank you for the compliments. My thanks go to Mr. Bill Petrick for a remarkable job with my birds.
