  1. A customer brought this in to get mounted. I never seen a hen Canvasback look like this. Have any ideas why?

    She's probably reallly old. I killed a 17 year old can a few years ago and he looked the same way.

    Glad that happens to more things than just me . . . do some of the feathers start to fall out in the front? ;D
