    A crane, 6 geese, a dozen or so ducks and counting. Between hunting and a little bit of a job description change I'll be working quite a bit of overtime planning the spring shut down, then lots over OT till summer. I do my birds on stages so I dont have a bunch of overhead on bodies and heads since I'm more of a hobbiest.

    Nice Lady Amherst’s wa. Many years back I owned a trio of second generation from wild caught Amherst’s. It was incredible how much brighter and cleaner the colors where on the male then the run of the mill bird back then.
    You ought to be pretty good at mounting pheasants once you get all those finished up

    Adding the female. She needs to tighten up a little before I pull her pants up and finishing preening her.

    Come on Dan, I have only ever done one and it was a flying pose. I must have been lucky?
