    SHEEESH - you leave for a couple days and everything changes when you get back ;o) I didn't even have a chance to vote - but it looks like it was 'spot on' - great job everyone. The winners definately deserve it - I think that Jim deserves an extra big pat on the back for doing a pigeon at all - they are SO hard to do to begin with - and to conciously CHOOSE to do one - well - we all knows he's a bit insane (snicker)

    nice competition - I vote CROW for the next one - ;o)

    its gonna be hard to find a bird that will be available to both american (north and South)and european and wherever else taxidermist might reside. and even crow for me would be hard because the season is only on in september and if they are like ducks they would be extremely pin feathered, but i have never tried. if it is a bird that i can easily get i would be glad to donate some to the comp next year.

    i just looked up the crow season here in michigan and it is august 1 - sept 30, and there is a new season this year from feb 1 - march 31 so if i took a bird in feb it would be prime to mount, crow could be an option, or we can throw a curveball at the europeans here and to a teal ;)
