He may be a little far from you, but Beaks and Bands taxidermy in McDonough does great work. I drive 2 hours each way to use him and it is worth the drive.

Here is a pic of the pintail he did for me. He is also working on some wood ducks for me and a friend and we will be bringing him more birds at the end of the season. Check out his Facebook page if you want to see more of his work.

Hardens in Thomasville is damn good, pricey though and takes a while.

He is out of CO, but its easy and quick to send your bird out there. Amazing work, I seen a banded mallard drake done by him and it is worth every cent. I am sending a banded wood out there!
