    Feather.... man grow a pair dude ... was asking a question..... no critique at all on the mount itself.... drake or hen ..... older hens can change plumage but do they change eye color?

    My personal Ringer I took to the Iowa show this past weekend. I killed this bird on a hunt with some buddies on the river 6 years ago. I love how curvy the whole piece turned out. For those of you up that way, you should definitely check out the Iowa show next year. Or you could be crazy like me and drive over 1,200 miles! Great people and a really great time!
