    Consider yourself blessed- I usually see all those species each season, but not the last, only ringers in the southern peninsula for me, great work! Is that a California or Florida taxidermist?

    I definitely feel blessed to get all those species. I did the taxidermy.

    Dang! I've been wanting a drake ringer on the wall for three decades now, I should probably try my hand at taxidermy soon. If you ever come to Florida again, I can put you on some ringers for sure!

    If I make it back to Florida it'll be for Osceola Turkey, that's if I can ever draw a limited entry permit. As for the Ringers......we got plenty out west, but thanks for the invite. IMG_9618.JPG

    Did you try those black bellies or just mount them? They are the best eating duck ever.

    Yes, I ate all the Black Bellies, the Fulvous and Mottled. They were delicious, especially the Whistlers.

    If you also have ringers you are indeed lucky- I am going one more time to try an bag an Osceola this weekend, public wma's are a big challenge.
