Okay - here are a couple of my pics. New camera, so cut me a bit of slack. One is of a drake widgeon I got this fall - and the other is the same widgeon on my wall - just got back from the taxidermist. Explanation: I have shot ducks numbering in the hundreds during my life - but this was the first drake widgeon with nice color (`baldpate'?) ... so I got him mounted. I would really like to get a drake pintail with full color/plumage - and if salvageable - get him mounted. And a pair of mallards.
And nice looking mount!
This is the 1'st year that I have ever seen a wigeon and i'll be picking up 1 I harvested up from the taxi. in 2 week's along with a gadwall. I harvested afew specie's this past season that I have never seen before in my area.
wigeon, gadwall, pintail, shoveller
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
