    That looks great!!

    Just my 2 cents... If your willing to drive to Arkansas to shoot a bird... What's driving a couple hours to get it done right!!

    Couple years ago I had a trophy walleye on lake erie, I opted to have it done there rather than bring it back to ky.. I was afraid she might look like a chunky musky if someone down here did it. Lol.
