A buddy from work just today gave me a whole pheasant that he shot a few years ago and he planned on getting it mounted until he found out what it costs to mount one. Now to skin it and get it into my plastic box of borax.

Keep an eye out on EBay, I think I have seen them there and they are really reasonable (like $5, if I recall correctly, plus another $5 for shipping).

You definately need to get that Beneilli out pheasant hunting!
Besides a great meal you will have a free source for feathers.

Hi Fysh,

I use a lot of pheasant and just got four new skins three ringneck and one silver. You know if you dye the ringneck you can come up with some great stuff for streamers. I use shoulder and flank most.

Got 14" of the white stuff today and just parked the plow. Getting ready for a trip to the cabin Monday morning. Gotta leave before light because of the short days. Don't want to get there at dark.

Hello Ard,
I do have a good selection of dyed Rooster Skins, but I don't have any Silver Pheasant. Perhaps it's time to find one.

You be careful on your travels, and have a good time at your cabin. It would be nice to have a place to escape for a few days.

Please post some pics when you return. I still have not had time to get the pics sent to you, but it looks like this upcoming week we are going to get a reprieve from the Snow, hopefully my wife will help me get some put together for you.

Did you get the 'Jib-Jab' I sent?
