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.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
