    Fighting the wing feathers to lay flat and align as both wing had broken bones and during drying things twist and pull as you well know. : )
    Thinking that if you can't get them to lay nicely before mounting, it will be even harder later.
    It sure is a beautiful specimen. The hunter centered his pattern nicely. : )
    I am always amazed how many birds sometimes I am hard pressed to find one shot hole.
    Have a great Christmas Ranier! Thanks for the compliment. It means a lot to me.
