Its hard to tell from the pics but the "buff" one doesn't appear to have any spurs. Is that a correct observation?

Definitely interesting mounts.

Correct, no spurs on the buff bird. The legs, wings, back feathers and tail seem to be of a hen. The head is some what rooster and it had a sick cackle.

Could the darker one be a Szechuan (SP?) Pheasant? I know they're a little darker, but also smaller.

Cool looking birds.

I heard there is only one way to shoot unique pheasants. Unique up on them. I'm sorry but I couldn't pass that up.

I also heard that is a way to shoot a tame pheasant. Tame way.

Been around my kids too much this week.

My buddy shot one like this 2 years ago and got it mounted. the taxidermist I believe called it a Mongolian Pheasant.

Nice mounts

crawler harness, I think the bird you and LEP7MM are referring to is more on the line of a Melanistic Mutant Pheasant crossed with a Chinese Ringneck Pheasant.

The Melanistic Mutant Pheasant seems to have alot less brown in it. That is why I question the cross of the two birds.

When the buff colored bird got up in front of us I yelled hen and when it got out to about 30 yards it cackled so I dropped it. I think that bird could not decide if it was going to be a hen or a rooster.

Just to clarify, both birds were shot in the wild.

Cool mounts!

That black one looks alot like a Bohemian Blackneck. Another pic of one is available on the strombergchickens site. A member of my party shot one a couple of years back. It even had a band around it's leg. I called in the band, and the bird was released something like 7 miles away. If I would have shot it, it would have been mounted also.

Now that buff colored bird just looks wrong. crazy

Is that weird looking bird a "Buff Pheasant." I just googled it, and they look similar.

Huntmup, were these birds shot near a hunting preserve, or some other shooting club where they may have released these birds, and then had them wonder over to you?

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
