  3. pj, did you keep the body and transfer your points of reference? Matt Smith in TX sells a heck of a DVD on a hooded merganser

    X2 ...and there's a video of Shane mounting a duck with his bird bodies on the McKenzie website! He shows exactly how to do it! I started using them last fall and I love them!
