    Hey Guys,

    Like the Buff pair I put on a little while back, finally had some time to put some more of the bird mounts on their new bases. Wish the cool sticks that I collected from the pond where they were taken would have shown up but what are ya gonna do:nutz


    Wood duck drake: I still need to get the hen to complete the pair.

    Shoveler Pair: To me it is hard to beat a fully plumaged Shoveler Drake!

    And because I am very excited about it, I have what will be the rarest bird ever posted on the forums coming next week (Personal collection anyway). But still has to get here safe and sound before I will post it up. Yea I know, big shoes to fill but trust me, it is that awesome:grvn


    Just thinking about the carriers throwing it around honestly makes me sick to my stomach!!

    Very nice Eric! They are very appealing to the eye, and very clean mounts:tu

    I like the mounts :tu

    I'm going to guess that the surprise is a masked duck being that you're from Texas and it would be a possibility :confused:
