    Thought I would try a new thread! we all like gifted birds but after they get gifted it would be nice to see what they turned out like. So now the person that gifted them can see how they turned out.

    This is a none critique thread no negative comment's pleases !

    I will start with some and add later.

    I like this new topic. My thanks to afthunt for coming up with the idea. Here is a Texas coastal pintail that was gifted to me from Matt Smith of Birdworks. He gave me 2 beautiful specimens and told me to pick the best one. Thanks Matt, and keep the posts coming.

    A couple more birds from Bob Jungman Thanks again they were great birds. took them to the Wisconsin show this past weekend and the Pintail was blue and best of category and the gadwall was second which is all my fault :( the bird was great i just screwed up some things that is what happens when try to do a bird 10 days before the show. Just wanted to say thanks to Korey again for judging he did a great job, all ready starting my mounts for next year no more rushing to get them done Ha Ha :eek:
