    smalliestalker and a river runs through it.

    Ted Weyenberg at http://www.worksofartwaterfowlstudio.com/ has OM bills for both of those.

    As others have mentioned here (Advanced search) Ted's heads are top of the line, for several reasons.

    And what is so cool, and unique about his OM heads, are that the tongue has a special, simple attachment which makes it removable for painting, and just clicks back into place - after you have the inside of the mouth, the lamellae and the bill painted. Really neat system.

    Call Ted Weyenberg. (920- 788 - 4515) for the open mouth wigeon Drake head it has a precast removable tongue that is the bomb diggity.

    Gadwall Drake head size can vary a great deal so for competition I would recommend that you cast the head and then do a lamellae transfer for best results. :)

    Yea I really wanted to use his heads but not sure what s going on
     
  6. For competition I would do what Matt suggested and cast your own. Ted's heads are awesome but if your out of luck there then definitely cast some.

    I have ordered heads from lone star taxidermy. The nasal passage is drilled out unlike some others. Good heads and are $8-10 closed or open.
