I could go for some imported beer. After seeing beer i saw lager instead of larger so i was really starting to get thirsty

Hi Karl,

That is a very large female you are obtaining.

I hope to find the right female for this huge male.

I need one in the size range of you new female.

You first have to size down you photographs before you are able to upload them in the attachments for your your reply.

If you want to email me the photographs I would love to see a picture of her I will send you my email address.

Best regards, Brian

OK, I just returned with the new Large Gerkin imported this week.

I am very dissapointed with the size and weight of this new Gerkin. He was put on the scale and only went up to 1110 grams. He is fat so he is nothing like "Goliath". I will post some pictures of him to see what you all think. He almost looks like there is Saker in his background.

Hi Jim,

I was a little bumed on the size and look of this new bird.

I just returned home tonight and have not flown in 4 days. I have one bird that is just coming into shape and the two others are couple of week behind. I am trying to get a few things done here before the snow flies and then I really can start hunting.

I want to invite you up when the ducks are really coming in. I heard from one older brother tonight that his pond had 500 ducks on it. He also told me my other bro's pond had about 6k on it so it should be soon.

Thinking about a Sharptail trip to Montana in the a week or so.

Having just come across this thread for the first time, I would also be interested in hearing of how this individual got on. I understand that a photo was posted when this thread was started but for some reason, its not appearing with the post? Maybe because I'm using my phone at the moment but if you have any more photos from over the years then I'd be interested in seeing these?

Kind Regards,

Bradley
