    Mallardsfowllife, great job! My favorite thing about the Canada's are that they won't fit on my work table, I have to use a 4x8 sheet of plywood to even dry the stupid things. Oh, and I'm 5'2"....So the wingspans are usually wider than mine!

    I doubled my price on Canada Geese this year, and I hope I NEVER get another.

    Thank all of you! And Brooke, I said the same thing after this one! If I haven't quoted it before, it's way more! I actually fleshed this one out with my 1HP wire wheel for deer because the fat was so thick. Lots of washing and scrubbing on this dude. I took extra time with the interior of the mouth with the tones in the tongue.

    Well here's the first contribution of my work to the site. I spent 3 days with someone who knew what they were doing a couple years back, and just started getting around to working on the birds in my freezer this past year. Here's solo bird #6 that I put together this past weekend.
