    Pretty Cool .... The one I mounted had to have been a second generation because it still looked like a Greenhead but had Silver hi lites .... It looked better after I groomed it but didn't take any pics .. This one was killed in the wild and not a pin raised bird so who knows ... Wish it wasn't in such horrible shape when I got it ... it was Just tossed in a freezer no bag nothing , for about 7 yrs ... Had to soak it for 3 days before I could skin it .... Usually when you start with a turd ...... You end with a turd ..... ( mine of coarse ) 20190330_124611.jpg

    Wish I knew why the computer just shows an "x" on a lot of photos when my other one (belongs to my school district) will show the photo. Anyone know why?

    Already have posted pics of him on BOTM, but since I posted pics of the skin on here, I’ll post pics of him mounted. 14207BE9-5437-4011-8787-BC970B4C3059.jpeg

    Ok, there’s kind of a problem with my blue eared pheasant. There is a smell coming from the wings. Have no idea if it’s his natural smell or if I missed pieces of meat in the wings somewhere. He did always have a slightly funky smell to him. If it is rot, what should I do? I don’t feel like completely unstitching him and going back into the wing. Maybe make a small cut in the wing and clean the rest of it out. But, the thing is, I don’t really know if it is actually rot. And if there is no way to get it out if it is rot, will the smell eventually go away?
