I know this an African hunting site, but I just had to share a picture of this mount. When I finally got my first wood duck, it was naturally headed straight to the taxidermist. I discussed how I wanted the mount and when it was completed last week the taxidermist called to let me know it was ready to pickup. However, he was hoping to take it to a show/contest in California if I was alright with that. I just got a text and the following pic from him. I'm really looking forward to getting this mount home now. I'm guessing the taxidermist will want to keep his ribbons, but they sure would spruce up my collection of "Participant ribbons" that my athletic prowess has garnered me.
