I need one of those drake widgeon for the wall.
I still dream of a euro for the wall. Spiffy bird for sure.
Here’s some good reference-
I've killed two, and both were hammered....just my luck.
Actually three, the third was a baby though.
Do a dead mount on it. I shot a Pintail up pretty bad, and had it done on a double dead mount with a Wigeon.
Euros are 15% smaller than Americans on average. I've had them in the same pile many times and they are always smaller. The hens are small and dark sometimes with a rust tint on the head. This info is easy to find. Every Euro I have killed, both hens and drakes has been a loner or with another Euro.
To the OP, congrats on your first. Quite the rush when you notice the red head.
Looks more like a Euro /American Hybrid ... A pure Euro doesn't have a green eye band ..... The head should be mostly maroon with a buff top ... I shot one like yours this season but it's a juvinal ...that one is an Adult from what I can tell ...need a pic of its back ... But I'm sure it's not a pure Euro ... probably Even more rare ... I'd mount the one you killed , mine is skinned out but won't mount it till I have a full pure Euro to go with my Storm ... cool bird ...
The bird that appears to be a hybrid is the size of an American.
Interesting. Every single Euro I’ve killed has been commingled into large flocks of wigeon, except 1.
Im thinking you may be correct the more I've looked into it. Sent it out today to get mounted !!
