    Any breed of quail you say? Hmmm, one of my pet quail just died (she is very unique), and I was recently gifted a domestic bobwhite....I like the sound of the quail challenge already!

    Go BeckyBird!

    I can't do this one unless the quail is supposed to look dead. About the only quail I do, go in bobcat mouths, so if they look bad, they are supposed too, LOL. Have fun yall, I'll just watch this one ;) I have to prepare myself for the snake challenge anyway.

    Jeremy, I'm in on the quail also, or at least I'll make a donation to a great cause. Actually, I think I will get these done in plenty of time.

    The bird has to be dry before the pictures are taken, RIGHT? :)

  16. ... I am screwed with the mallard... I skinned one out a while ago and dont have a head. Didnt notice the feet had been shot and one foot had no toes. The only artifical feet I can find in my stuff is bufflehead and woodduck, too small.... and the biggest head I have is a pintail.

    I do have a fresh valley quail, so I can try to do that one. Unless I come across another mallard in the next day or so, I am out. BUT, since I commited to it, I am still willing to pay my entry fee... just tell me where to send it.

    Taking pics today.
     
  19. Man, I just found this out....
    I took it out of the freezer (the skin) yesterday afternoon, figured I could squeeze the mounting in on time. But I skinned it a month ago when I was in the middle of working two jobs and prepping for my state show. Must of had a brain fart, didnt notice the feet at the time and just put them in the bag with the skin. The head, I could of swore I had one! Threw the real one into the beetle tank and didnt try to cast it. I am just a tard..... ;)

    Not sure if I will have the time now. Thanks for the offer. was trying to arrange to go to Ron's place this weekend,... I can cheat and have him help me mount the mallard for the challange..... ::) :p ;D ;D ;D
