    yeah man,she was sick and i didn't know but now she is quite well.one of my friends keep her in his garden and feed her just with one meal in a day , i purchased some strong foods like friskiess and .... and now she is getting better!it's a mixed German shorthaired pointer and they are built a little lean!as a description here in my country keeping a dog home is not legal and most of the people don't like them, for freaking religious limitations!

    Ah yes, you already mounted it a while ago didn't you Babak? I hope it won't get you in trouble if it's a protected species. Anyway, shooting the wrong bird by mistake can happen to any hunter, and then you can better mount it so it won't be wasted.

    ;) No sir,here in my country we have bunch of rules and laws ,but there is nobody to check them!!!LOL ,quite frankly ,from statistical point ,80 percent of big game hunts here occur illegally,and something around 50 percent in birds!
    yes,i mounted it,very hard to work with it,full of pin feathers and some very loose feathers bases.

    RMW, save a sage for me, I will take it next year, when I come to US for a little bit waterfowling,

  18. Stupid question time. I don't hunt (but have no problem with it) so simply don't know the answer. What the hell do you do with 20-30 large ducks or geese when you have shot them - do they all get stored for mounts, are some eaten, give them to friends (that's what we do when we have too many fish) ??? - sorry, just curious.

    although I rarely hunt geese or ducks,for i live in mountainous area ,about my birds i always open a small hole and take out abdominal interior members like garbage and store it in fridge for suitable time to mount and when i skin it i usually use the meat for food,of course some time i use fresh meat or donate.
