    Thanks guys for your comments on my deadmount...I appreciate it. I can't believe I got to start BOTW...thanks JP! I only got to mount one bird all week and of course it had to be a bufflehead. I don't really want to post a pic of it after seeing the buffle from gulfcoast.... Oh well, I can only hope that I can one day turn out that kinda quality work. By the way I love the woodduck mount from the show, that is a fantastic piece. GC

    Black duck. Bird was freezer burnt, blasted, and had both wings broken in two places- other than that, it was a good bird ::).

    hey Igor, know what the trick is with the red wing feathers? they actually don´t show in sitting birds, so no worrries with washing the colour off! ;)

    Taxos, I knew it, but could not cover it, because it was salted, and difficult to to move the wing feathers without making odd folds. Nice Barny :)
