KS Taxidermist

Postby DanJeffandJack » Thu Dec 20, 2012 6:46 pm

Anyone have any experience with a KS taxidermist who does canvasbacks?

Just got back from a trip of a lifetime down on the LA Coastal Marsh. Shot both a Bull and Hen Canvasback.

Thinking I want to get a flying mount something along the lines of this:

Or

Those are roughly in order of preference. But would prefer that first mount in a wall mount setting instead of a table mount.

Right now I'm thinking of just sending it off to Birdman Studios who actually did that first mount, but was willing to see if there was someone local who people liked?

Price isn't the most important factor, but would still like something somewhat reasonable. Also if anyone has any Can mounts or other ideas post em up!!! Thought about doing a dead mount, but since both birds ended up being in perfect condition decided to show off their wings.

Ended up pushing my surgery back until next year, so I could have gone. I decided to have a little retail therapy when I learned about the 15k bill I will be recieving at the end of this deal, so I bought a new boat you need to come down and hunt out of sometime.

Nice mount. I would like to get a dead mount of a drake and teal together, both having green in the head. Would look sweet

I was really happy with natures art taxidermy. He did both my mounts, not dead mounts though.
