    Going to New Zealand in May. Might be able to get a couple of paradise ducks. What do I need to do to them-skin and salt? Will they be mountable when I get them back to US if so?

    "Might be able to get some parries" If you can't then it's time to switch to playing golf. Parries are everywhere and decoy easier than any bird I've ever seen. You'll need a NZ export permit obtainable through a NZ taxidermist' There's one particular taxidermist in Christchurch that will make it sound very difficult and will try to convince you to let him export them for you, at a VERY HIGH PRICE. It should only cost about $60-$70 NZD
    Are you going to the south or north island ? God willing I'll be on the south Is next May.
