That was an epic day for sure. What a great way to end the season. Scott the bird looks great. My blood is boiling to get out and hunt. We spent the day scouting yesterday for some new deer areas and the season is almost here. FYI, the ponds will be dry within the next week or two so if we want to dig that pit now is the time to do it. Maybe when you get back.
Have you ever tried mounting divers coming straight in? I had this Redhead done for one of the kids I take hunting ( his 1st diver & graduation present). What I like about it is it shows the entire bird and just has that look about it when they tip when coming in.
Neil, that bird will make a beautiful mount, great looking plumage!
Steve, what a great graduation present, and a very nice mount to boot. I've got a pair of Canvasbacks I'll be doing soon that will be posed coming straight out in a HARD bank to final approach. I agree, it's a great way to pose divers!
