Got My 2012 Merriams Back

Post by aristico » October 4th, 2012, 4:45 pm

Here are a couple of pics of the two Merriams I took this year in New Mexico...One in full strut and a Fan mount....The one standing straight up is an Eastern I took in Missouri a few years back.

Congratulations great mounts. The eastern has a paint brush. The strutter looks great next to the fire place. :thumbup:

Thanks everyone. Yea that Eastern has a monster beard. Taxidermist told me to never hunt them again cuz it would be hard to beat :-) Will hopefully be getting my Rio soon.
