About The Cover
Our cover features the taxidermy art of Harvey Zeigler from Marion, Illinois. This very artistic pieces features three hybrids, which are crosses from a wood duck (hen) and a English grey call duck (drake). English grey call ducks are very similar to mallards, but smaller. The reeds were made of steel by Ziegler. Two of the birds were entered at the 1998 NTA Convention in Huntsville, Alabama, scoring 96 and 97 in the Division of Excellence. At the 1998 Illinois competition, the mount received People's Choice, Best of Show, Taxidermists' Choice and the WASCO Award. Breakthrough Magazine recognizes Harvey Zeigler as one of the top waterfowl taxidermists in the world.
