Taxidermy

Got my first snow goose the other day and I'd like to get it mounted. Anyone recommend a bird specialist or favorite taxidermist?

Did you get it in NH? Nice work if so!!

The only bird I did not do myself was a bufflehead that AAR (was a sponsor- now a Mod?) did. He is in Texas though. Birdman Studios is a sponsor here and I have looked through his gallery and it is very very good, if you want to ship it out.

I know there is one by the seacoast who is good, but I do not recall the name.

Yes, got it in NH. I should've gotten more but they didn't decoy. It was snowing out and my father in law and I were in the blinds waiting for the canadians we had scouted. All of a sudden we heard them in the distance but couldn't see them. At the same time we said..."Those are f***ing snow geese!!!" It was fun, a flock of about 50 started circling. On the fifth pass we noticed they weren't going to set to land so we took the 70 yd shot and each got one. Bummer we didn't get more but we're excited to have gotten them in NH! My first ever, his 2nd. Good times!!

To be honest it's not worth wasting your money on any local taxidermist for bird work. If you feel it is a trophy of a lifetime than send it off to birdman studios. Just take a look at his site and you'll see why. Fair prices as well. Good luck in your search. Any pics?

I had left my phone behind but my father in law took pics with a disposable camera. If he ever gets them developed I will start another thread. Thanks for the advice. I will check out that website.

Watch out going to Phil's. His son jay who is in his 40s corned my mom an tryed to kiss her started feeling her up etc the cops called it attempted rape moral of the story don't send your daughters-wife-or Gf in there alone just a heads up.also quality of work going down hill now that phill is getting old an jay is doing the work. Me an my dad have over 20 mounts by them until that incident took place. I now go to wildlife taxidermy its in the massibesick circle. John foster does awesome work
