    Im from California and just shot my first blue wing today. I’d like to get it mounted along with a cinnamon Drake. Only problem is both legs took some shot damage. Otherwise the bird is in fine shape. Is it worth trying to get it mounted or is there a way to fix the legs or make it look better?

    Thank you!

    About half the feet I mess with have some sort of damage, ur guy should be able to fix most anything. If not he can get another pair from another snow goose. Take it to him before the goose season next month so if he needs a pair you won't have to wait till next season to get your bird back.

    Most taxidermist can fix it if it really bad may need another birds legs to fix it

    A blue wing teal with freakishly huge pink legs would look pretty sweet!!:l:l

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! That’s awesome. We’ll just say he’s a BWT who identifies as a snow goose and he’s in transition.
