    Would anyone be able to help me out with a couple pairs of waterfowl legs/feet that they could gift me? I want to try a couple of tests on different injecting fluids. 2-3 pairs is all I am really looking for this test.

    Help on this would be greatly appreciated.
    Dan

    P.S. I have gifted a "few" things through the years. Several had responded if you ever need anything, ask. Well I am asking now. : ) -- I know a lot of those people are no longer on here. But there are a couple still here yet . . .

    Shawn, Thanks.
    They don't have to be pairs either. Just not any holes.

    That would be nice of you. If you want to be species specific (not a requirement) I would take a pair of wood duck drake legs/feet. But not necessary at all.

    Thanks to all of you for looking and offering to help. I am getting a couple of sets from a local WI taxi. After I do my testing next week (need to let them set for 2 weeks or so), I will let you know what my thoughts and opinions are. If I need more legs/feet, I will ask again later. But, I should be good to go. Dan

    Good deal. I look forward to hearing your results. I thought I finally got a handle on MB and they quit making it. What I use now from Matuska works but, I can't say I really like it.

    I think Research Manikens (sp) still sells the original MB.

    I think I heard that somewhere but for how long is the question. I would be nice to find something that works and will remain available. I have mixed a brand of clear sealant with xylol and injected turkey feet before and they still look good about 12 years later. They were even just a tad flexible the last time I checked.

    Sorry Dan, I got sicker than a dog and swamped with deer coming in at the same time, I never made it out hunting this weekend, skin, flesh, and salt and repeat is my life right now and chit's freezing up, meaning my duck hunting is for the most part over for the season because fire arms deer season opens next weekend.
