    wow Cheri! what a nice looking duck. I like it a lot. ;D
    I like those hornbills also the are cool looking birds ;D
    the other ducks and owls are fantastic to look at, so lifelike, wow.
    thank you all for the nice comments on my owl. It is nowhere near as good looking as the other owls posted on here but it was a good save. It was already a little stinky as i got it. ::)

    wow... nice salted skins igor. You sure know how to mount them looking like a fresh skin.

    Karin,, Is that mallard a hybrid ? or just a unique colour ? great mount though.

    Matt, thanks for the neck exercise,, ;D cool mounts though.

    keep them coming folks....
    cheers all.

    Mett, they look much prettier now.. everything looks good brother.
    Thanks.
    makes me want to get some buffies for myself.
     
  16. I'm not sure what it's crossed with.It was shot in the wild but my guess is a white call duck because of it's small head and body size.

    Yes, technically it's a mallard with mutations rather than a mallard cross, (because even pure call ducks are nothing but mutated mallards) but it's still a very pretty duck.
    Well worth mounting, and a nice job on a specimen that a lot of people might have neglected.
