Yesterday Tealitup and I shot some Mallards I think that we should mount the some of the Drakes one is a 3.5 curl and there were 2 more big 3 curl drakes are they worthy of getting mounted?

Congrats sounds like you got some nice birds. I would think they are worthy of mounting but it is your opinion that counts. Good luck with your decision.

Big. Colorful. Multiple Curls.

What more could you want?

My buddy asked me the other day why our family hasn't mounted a drake mallard yet. I'm really not sure. I think I'm going to wait for a banded greenhead if I could ever get so lucky.

Our day was three drakes with three + curls; the other two drakes had full two curls. Then shot two wood ducks and a hen mallard (the hen was a mistake).

We then saw seven pheasants but none were roosters. OrionsXO put the sneak on a nice buck with his bow (after we just got done shooting 6 rounds in the shotgun), but was busted by the 12 other deer in the woods that we did not see. He did get about 30 yards away.

What a great day of hunting!!!

There are many things to consider when deciding to mount a mallard. Sounds to me like you have it all! Not only nice birds, but a story to go with it.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
