Ultimate Trophy Duck
« on: February 21, 2010, 08:05:56 PM »
What is the duck that you would like to shoot the most for trophy mount? Mine would probably be a Euro Wigeon or a storm Wigeon. I think they are just the coolest looking ducks, hell even shooting a fully plumed american wigeon drake is cool to me ( I only killed like 2 good drakes last year).

So what you you choose?

Sorry guess I'm just bored with the off season. :chuckle:

Eurasian Wigeon and Harli's seem to be at the top of somes list.  I wouldn't mind taking a king Eider.
Cut em!
It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!

Baikal Teal or a King Eider.  Both would make my day.

Harli-
Old Squaw-
King Eider-
Puffin-
Wood duck-
Pintail-

In that order. I know Puffin's aren't ducks, but they are considered "sea birds" like eiders in Iceland. if I can discipline myself to put away some money I may go after an Icelandic "seabird" hunt in 2011. it runs till like May, so I can go after our season closes.

For those who live hours from the sea like me can we get some pics of the ducks you all are talking about. Most ducks mentioned I've never heard of.

I'd like a pear of American Wigean & Wood Duck.
God Bless,
Scott

You know I've seen a lot of beautiful mounts of birds that you can't get outside of Alaska and after seeing those mounts year after year even the ones in a dust cover I still believe a photo is better it just does not show age...sorry but that is just my opinion. I guess that is why I like Euro mounts also, no aging falling our hair. BTW I'll blast anything and for the most part I'll eat anything I shoot.
