    Nice bird Brooke! Any chance you will post a photo of the front of the bird also? I am mounting on similar (but on driftwood to hang on the wall).

    I'll take a pic today. It's going on the wall on driftwood. It's just on a mounting stand in the pic. I leave them on the stands until dry then move them to driftwood. In fact I'm mounting 5 pintails this week....all basically the same pose.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments.

    I'd pay a lot of money to live in an area where you can shoot birds of that quality much less to be able to mount some . . . Beautiful Pinney Brooke

    IMG_1700.JPG My 1st goose. Glad I didn't have plans for the evening....this bird was a days work. Had some very bad looking secondary feathers, but he was the first goose I harvested and I wanted to practice on him. My 7th bird. I'm hooked.

    Won't go into too many details but was brought this pintail after it was mounted for a remount. Soaked it and was fortunate to get it apart, neck was too long and body too large, neck was sewed up tight from holes and hard to deal with. Left wing had no bones left and no reconstruction and was sewed tight from holes so couldn't invert it.

    Luckily it was cleaned good as far as fat so was able to get it back together. Not as perfect as I'd want but good for what it was.
