I shot a goldeneye last year up in Ontario that was swimming around and diving but never flew. I water-swatted it (the only legitimate excuse I've ever heard for doing such a thing smirk.gif )and when I went and picked it up, I noticed it only had a stub for a leg.

A couple of years ago I shot a mallard drake with half a foot. Don't drink the water!

Could be a number of things...

Injury, disease, snapping turtle, muskie or pike. grin.gif

More than likely something happened to the bird when it was young and figured out away to survive until it met your #2's.

I looked it over very well and there wasn't even a thigh where the thigh should be. It was feathered over like it never had a leg on that side. Strange but kind of interesting. I am thinking of mounting it this winter. Maybe when i get it mounted and it is completed, I will post a pic of it.

3 times for me a Teal, a Woodie , ans a Mallard. Happens allot to wounded birds. I don't know if it falls off after being wounded or what but it happens allot.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
