IMO,one if the toughest birds to mount.
I agree with you wholeheartedly and you got them nailed down
A different style dead mount.
Wicked awesome MFL

Nice Brooke ! i wish our hunters could shoot woodies up here like that wow.
What do you mean? They shoot em that nice every year up here in the north, just ask em. Those tiny pinfeathered buggers will start coming in this weekend, our season opens. WTH?
I hear ya. Hardly ever get a pinfeathered Woody here, usually they're just blown to crap and the heads are torn from guys biting them.
That widgeon was supposed to be banking but the whole right wing was shot up. Feathers all chipped and lots of missing coverts....so that's what he's gonna get.
Oooo don't get me started on heavy shot.. and shooting ducks with 1's and 2's
the mature drakes are around Mn Wisc just have to know where to find them and you need to educate your clients
I can educate them until I'm blue in the face but it only sinks into some of them. When I get a frozen duck in, I ask what they want for a mount but also tell them that it will ultimately be my call on how it is mounted. I have yet to have anyone refuse it. They all think that they shot a "Trophy" bird especially drake woodies. Every now and again I get a nice mature woody to work on.
yeah fur sure most guys ya know shoot them coming into decoys most are younguns with mama but the mature drakes are back in the secluded beaver ponds and stuff dontcha know ya gotta go find em but you betcha theys there ya
I would take a duck shot with big shot any day cuz most have only 2-3 bbs in em bigger shot has more open pattern due to less shot
1956 chevy ... what kind of "bird" is that??? do you see your in the bird section
Always awesome to see everyone's amazing work on here ! Here's a widgeon from me .
Uncles first wood duck in 50 years. Shame my cousin dog did a number on it, thing would eat it if you left him with it. I did what I could with the pose he wanted.
