At some point I'd like to get a wigeon mounted. I shot this one last season and he is still in my deep freezer. He is a really pretty bird. The only thing holding me back is that he was on the small side. Noticeably smaller than the other wigeons I shot on the same hunt.

You guys that have shot a lot more wigeons than me over the years, how likely is it that I'll shoot a really nice storm?

I've got him out to clean several times but keep putting him back.




Shot this wigeon on the same hunt that was noticeably larger and had more green on his head but was shot up really bad.

I've shot a handful of storms. But none of them were real great. I have one mounted. Not a storm but a really pretty bird. Everything was perfect on him.

So you've shot as many widgeons in that picture as me all of last year! I'd mount that one but I don't get many, if you're knocking down 20 a year you can probably wait for one you really like. Beautiful birds for sure

Hard to tell cause he's frozen but your typical wigeon.

Looks good. A good mature wigeon will have a little sprig on the tail. Looks like yours has it.

Through guiding and self hunting over the years We've only shot one good storm out of prob 500 wigeons. You'll regret not mounting it if you don't ever shoot another. I have a nice wigeon on the wall and if I shot a good storm he's goin on there too
