Nice mounts. How far did you travel to get the chukar?
I had an older friend who passed a few years back. Nobody wanted anything to do with his African mounts and stuff.
Did the same guy do all the decoys?
Perfect duck to mount right there! Very nice decoy collection too.
Never mounted a duck. Had a pintail in the freezer I was gonna mount but never did, finally threw it out when the freezer went bad last year.... 15 years after i killed it. I mounted 2 deer i killed when i was 18 & 19. Both really nice big bodied 8 pointers for this area but nothing tremendous but at that age i thought they were giants! They are now in the garage. I've thought about just cutting the horns off and tossing the heads. I'd like to have a stud wigeon mounted and would definitely mount a euro. A mature bluewing would be cool to but we don't see those.
A Greater Scaup that was my first duck shot in 1972.
Double banded Greenhead.
A Drake wood duck I shot about 35 years ago.
All these were mounted when it was cheaper and 2 were done by a learning taxidermist.
Ironically I shot a storm widgeon 4 years ago and didn't mount it.
About 25 different artist... Mostly known... A couple that I don't know who owned them... Working on my "decoy slam"... Once I compile all the species, I'm going to rig them all and hunt over all of them at once with select friends that understand how expensive they are and won't shoot them up.
If you like curls, take a close look at the lamp in the background. It's a clear glass lamp like some folks put marbles or colored sand in, but mine is filled with curls. Have another at the lake.
To New Jersey. Shot it over 40 years ago with Gene Hill.
Now that's cool!
Don't sweat it, Slayer is a friend. Here's my youngest when he got the mount for his birthday.
And my oldest with his first turkey.
These are from the first limit of ducks my youngest ever killed. It was a special day at a special place, and it deserved to live in more than our memories.
