Looking for a good taxidermist

Got lucky enough this year to get all 3 teal species in the grasslands and would like to do a mount with all 3 of them. Any recommendations for a good taxidermist?

Tanner Mathews in Hanford does an amazing job and it won't cost you an arm. He's the first person I recommend.

I used Steve Eberhart for the first time ever on a pair of woodies and a bull sprig. I posted pics of the mounts a few months ago. Steve did such a fantastic job on mine. I highly recommend him. Congrats on the blue wing, that's awsome :thumbsup:
I hunt cause I love going deep into the bush and I always shoot twice!

Not sure how far you are willing to drive, but Dans Taxidermy in Vacaville Ca has been great to me. He fast (around 2-3 months) does great work, and for 125 bucks a duck...for me it was a no brainer. His number is (707)-452-0131. I have several birds done by him. If you would like pics just pm me. Ill text them to you.

I've also had 4 ducks mounted by Steve Eberhart and they have all turned out excellent. Turn around time is a bit long, but worth the wait. He'll pick up the bird from your house, and drop it of C.O.D. when it's finished. Prices are very reasonable too.

I've called Steve three times trying to get him to meet up with me to pick up a pintail saying basically i'll drive anywhere in northern california to meet him. He just keeps saying "let me figure out my schedule" and never calls back. Thinking about giving Dan in Vacaville a try. Vanover- can you post pictures?
