Picked up my mallard last night. Came out great. A buddy of mine's little brother goes to A&M and does mounts on winter and summer breaks. He does a pretty good job I think! He did my merganser and Wigeon last year.
Nice! only got one redhead this year.. he was young. and must have been lost. First one we've seen where I hunt.
Garrett and Hayraker.. I'm a teacher. Can't be spending $300+ for top of the line. A friend of mine does a pretty good job for a good price so I'm gonna go that route! He's self-taught and learning, but he does a pretty good job I think!
DuckCoach1985 They guide we used last year is in Seldovia, AK. The trip was much more affordable ( especially if you airline miles) than I ever thought. I spent twice as much on taxidermy as I did on the hunt. If you ever want the info just shot me a PM.
DuckCoach, I like that mount! Really feel he captured the "backpedaling" look with the wings and landing gear. Then again, y'all can probably tell by my username that I'm a sucker for such things Cool hobby for a college student!
