    4th 5th and 6th mount, first tripple mount. one of the drake redheads i couldn't get his back feathers to lay right but he had lots of pin feathers would this be a reason why they wouldn't lay right?

    it wont let me post bigger pictures
     
  5. then try to post your pictures on imageshack or photobucket...and then post the links
    the goose looks nice, but to me it doesn't look like a natural pose of the bird, ...well i'm no expert, i can't critique...i haven't even mounted a goose, just shot my first in november ;D

    that is my first one i have killed as well not really sure of its pose either, i will be adding some corn shucks to the base as well for it to appear as it is eating somewhat

    Your balance point of your goose seems to be too far back, like he is tipping over on his bill. The neck on a feeding goose also has more of a sweep rather than straight out. I'll try to include a reference of Canadian geese feeding.
    Keep at it.

    kjdouble its head is also rotated a bit its not quiet as straight as it looks not a very good pic. but i see what you are saying it needs a little crook in the neck up and down. not just horizontal
