    I shot a 20# Honker last fall, its been in the freezer, is it too late to have it mounted?

    Depends on how you packaged it. If you did it right, it's not too late. But I wouldn't wait too much longer. If the guy you use is backed up with other orders, it could sit in his freezer for awhile also. I would ask for his opinion.

    Lots of taxidermists have customers’ birds sitting in freezers longer than you have had yours.

    Hopefully your power doesn't go out, opening the electronic lock on your house door allowing the coyotes to get in and eat it before you get your camera charged to get a picture, or get it to the taxidermist. (did I cover most of the excuses? )

    Remember especially enjoying "A coyote ate it."

    I guided goose hunters in Southern Illinois when the geese came by the hundreds of thousands. I've seen ALOT of canadas die. None even approached 20 lbs.

    I got a pair of 20 pounders living down on the pond right now. I'll put a trail camera on the tree down there and sprinkle a little corn around a bathroom scale and let ya know when I get a pic of them on the scale. They might be 25 lbs. Giants I tell ya!

    You guys hear that? It's the sound of LP Brezny loading up 4" 8 gauge hulls with depleted uranium buckshot in anticipation of shooting more 20 pound birds.
