What bird would you have to get mounted?
My top three would be a speckle belly, cinnamon teal, and whistler. My top five might include a hoodie. I just killed a perfect hoodie and it is my first drake. I'm probably going to get him done. Would you?

I like bluebills, cans and redheads. The scaup require a fair amount of seasoning though.

All of them. But 1 or 2 a year so the tax bill stays with inflation. I want all drake puddlers and a hand full of divers on the wall. It just takes time to get a mature, undamaged bird to fill it out.

Might be a dumb question but is a black mallard the same as a "black duck". I'm new to TX and have done most of my duck hunting in the mid-west. There we killed black ducks, which are similar to mallards. Sometimes people would confuse the, with hem mallards but they are much darker. They are a beautiful duck to mount.
