Shot my first geese (Canadas) yesterday afternoon. I saved the biggest one, an 11 lber, to mount. I was going to save the other birds head to cast. I figured I would just pull the skin forward until it tore off at the beak. LOL I didnt know the beak was covered in skin!!! It stripped right to the tip. Oh well Im sure I can cast the head of the one I plan to mount anyway. I am certainly a newb when it comes to birds.
