I dont see where this has been discussd on here but my question is how do you feel about mounting someone else's bird as a replacement bird.As I get older I think back about some of the ducks I just breasted out and think of how now I would of liked to get them mounted. Especially on some of the ducks I dont see too often and I need to complete my duck collection. Ill post up a few senarios and lets see what yall think. A) Your hunting out of the country and kill say a cinnamon teal and while transporting back it gets held up and spoils. B) Your hunting as a kid and kill a full plume Northern Shoveler (which btw is pretty rare to see colored out in my area) but you clean it because you didnt have the money to mount years ago. C) Your hunting and suddenly a single duck swings the decoys, you and your bud instinctivle shoot. Turns out you both shoot the same canvasback and both want to have it mounted. D) A hurricane hits your town and you lose all of your duck mounts, some with memories that could never be replaced. I think I could convince myself it's ok to use a replacement bird if it's pen raised. But I can't get over the fact that someone else went out, worked, shot, and recovered a bird that im mounting, but i actually have no part of. Im actually mounting a gifted cinnamon because I know ill never see one in my lifetime(plus theyr beautiful!) but the rest is still uneasy with me. What's your outlook on this?
