    Default Trophy ducks

    Given where you hunt and considering any and all ducks that you may kill, what are your trophy birds that you would have mounted for the wall?
    Mine are first, a wood duck, then a pintail, then a redhead, which I got today!
    Trap is hard to get a good picture of. I think he is camera shy.

    im looking for a nice drake pintail. we don't get a ton in Ohio and they are a weary bird. Also would like nice drake GW teal in full plumage. we get a decent amount of them but they are tastey!

    Call me crazy, but a Drake Spoonie as colorful as they are in March, would definitely go on the wall if any where here in season, that pretty.

    a Drake Oldsquaw, I had a group back in the mid 90s come in but I was caught off guard so didn't shoot I don't hunt the Ohio river anymore but if one presents the opportunity I wouldn't mind having it on the wall

    I shot a bootlip drake the last day of the season a few years ago and it was one of the prettiest birds I have ever seen. I mounted it, and it turned out beautiful.

    I have a black duck mounted. Then mounted a widgeon and gadwall my last dog on her last hunt retrieved before she passed, just for that reason. I do it for the memories not the duck but I'm still waiting to shoot a nice pintail . I wish I would of mounted a wood duck when I lived in N.C. because there I got tired of shooting them and here in Texas I haven't seen that many.

    I'm sorry, but a damn Hollywood will never be accused of being "pretty", "beautiful", or "elegant".
