    I have been chasing ducks since I was knee high to a grass hopper. I have shot hundreds of birds over the years. In all of those years I have shot 1 black duck. This year I was lucky enough to shoot 2. This one is going on the wall. From googling images, I am pretty sure it is a drake.

    Looks like a drake, DU. Tough to tell with the snow on his beak, but looks yellow…..like a drake mallards.

    I just got one back from the taxidermist. I’ve got 2 of them on the wall. If I can remember how to down load pics, I’ll post it.

    Looks good DU. I’ve shot 3. None are on the wall and I regret not mounting any of them.

    It does have the yellow bill and I wish I would have thought to remove the snow before the picture. I was unaware that the bill was one of the main factors in figuring out if it is a drake or hen but learned after doing some googling and looking it up.

    No my mom does not carve decoys. She makes hand made Christmas cards.
