This is my brothers mount. I have a bald eagle mount as well.I used to see them all the time when I lived in Arizona. Occasionally see them in western Oklahoma.
I took this pic at Terry's Taxidermy last year. It was a legal kill with an Indian permit. Actually putting my hands on its beak and talons is one of the neatest things I've done in quite a while.
We didn't not kill them. We are Potawatomi, and we had to apply for a permit. It took three years to be approved and then we were called by the Eagle Repository and asked what kind of Eagle we would like. I think mine died of old age......I'd like to hear more about this???
I don't know if the Sooner Lake eagles are going to use the pole nest this year or not (according to the experts) But the nest at Vian, OK is active right now.We have the eagle cam at Sooner Lake.
I know your post is a joke, but actually, I'm pretty good friends with the Osage county Game Ranger. He got a call from somebody at Kaw Lake reporting somebody shooting at an eagle. He got to the area, saw a vehicle, and found two guys with a dead eagle on the ground with the breasts cut out. They didn't have a clue what they had just shot. It got real expensive, real quick.Oh my word Blad Eagles taste great, alittle like spotted owls but less gamey . LOL LOL
