I've was never much into hunting growing up... except for shooting birds with my BB gun and feeding them to my cats. But last year I woke up and realized that my mission in life going forward was to harvest critters. So I took up duck hunting. Here's my first duck:



I shot it in East Texas last December. Just got it back from Taxidermy this week.

Benelli Cordoba, #4 Hevi-Shot

[noob hunting guess]

Fixing those holes is probably part of the taxidermy process.
noob got it in one... bear in mind, it doesn't take a whole lot of shot to bring a duck down... I got this one thru the hind section with a few through the chest.

Feathers cover pellet holes very well. Even if you break a wing a good taxidermist can put the bird back together so you'll never know.

Congrats - nice mount!


Its amazing what a taxidermist can do to hide an imperfections on the animal
I had a duck mounted that hung on the wall - it stayed with my ex.

He shot it with a bow from across a creek
he wouldn't die
so I hopped across the creek & put another arrow thru it.

:lol:

Because he probably would not have paid the taxidermist for it if it came back all bloody with the head dangling off to oneside with its beak open and the tongue sticking out.

Thanks! I'm quite proud of it. Duck hunting with a bow! That's got to be difficult. Even if they're on a bank, they never seem to sit still for more than a few seconds.

It's because I like Glock's & Benelli's, and sell perfectly good Winchester lever-action rifles, right?
