Here's the pics from the trip. The drake eider I'm holding was one of my doubles. I got him and the drake on the top left in the background with the same shot. My brother forgot to chamber a shell and I heard a "click" when I said take 'em so I pull up on the front bird and dropped both! They're both stud drakes and are both getting mounted! We have 12 mounters total from the trip. I finished my trip off yesterday by finishing my limit on a drake and hen black scoter that came in. 2 shots, 2 dead birds! The drake will be mounted as will my hen black from the day before. Here's some of the pics I took.

12 of the 22 I'm doing myself. 2 are for display in my cousin's shop since he takes in birds for me at his place near PA. 4-6 are going to other taxidermists, and I have I think 4-5 extra to give away if anyone wants them.
