very nice work.
Thats awsome work.
Mallards are my favorite duck to shoot, but the last bird I would want on the wall.
I have to say that I have just had a change of opinion... That is simply awsome, and gives me warm memories of hunting with my grandfather when I was younger.
I have to say, that I really liked the contrast of the hanging sprig and mallard together. And that teal really put the finishing touches on for me (as sprig and greenwings were the main birds I shot with my grandfather).
The old decoys and shell boxes are outstanding as well. It truly gives me the feeling of nostalgia. That piece right there, describes what hunting is all about for me.
That is one of the best looking mounts I have ever seen! It brought back memories of my first dog. they say you only have one really great dog and that is what I had too with my first one. Now I will have to start a collection of items to do a mount like yours. I have my grandpas old single shot 12 that I am going to try to shoot a limit of birds one of these falls and maybe I will get some nice birds for something similiar to your dead-mount.
that work is truely amazing.. Great work, love it
Great job! Any waterfowl hunter would be proud to have that in their collection. Ed
I don't know if this is one of those moments of things happening for a reason, but I saw this post today on the California forum and checked it out. On Monday, I have scheduled to respectfully and humanely say farewell to my chocolate lab and hunting partner of 9 years, Dustin's Lucky Penny. Seeing this work of art and the amount of time dedicated to creating it, has reminded me to not focus on the loss, but rather the memories of every retrieve, lick and head on the lap snoozes our pups ever did. This piece only demonstrates just how much these companions mean to us. Sincerely, thank you for sharing this piece. It has made a big difference with my attitude and anxiety about Monday. I have to say though, I choked up a bit when reading about the timing and meaning of adding the collar.
Dam that's pretty
Nice work all around
