    Island W or maybe Island Z, can't remember. I'm old and forgetful.

    Here's my two. First one Shane did under my close supervision. :bow

    Second I did. Big difference I see is in fluffing those feathers forward and letting that green undertone show.

    Todd, dude you've got to give yourself some credit. You did a darn fine job on your bird.

    You were a wise man for keeping Shane under close supervision, you've gotta watch that fella :dv

    Thankyou. At this point I am 100% comfortable doing a king and knowing it will turn out. I did the other three from our group too and they were beyond happy. Especially since I traded even for a gator hunt. We both think we got the better deal.

    And think the hen eider is underrated as a trophy bird.

    It is tough to get decent pics through class.

    You've got a fine hen too Todd :tu

    I don't think the one I got is as good as yours or Pattricks. I should have taken the one Moe told me to shoot :nutz I'm happy either way though. Pattrick I can't wait to see your mounts :tu
