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.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
