taxidermy

Postby Living Fowl » Sun Oct 27, 2013 3:24 pm

So today finally got a bird I want to mount. Got me a woodie!! :yes: does anyone know of a good taxidermist here in Albuquerque I can send him to? Or where I can begin looking? From my understanding not too many taxidermist want to go through the federal paper work to mount migratory birds.

I had a wigeon done last year. I was very happy with the work. Birds By Bercier did the mount got it back just about the promised time too.

Here's a link to the thread with pictures of the bird.

One of the best bird taxis in the country is a couple hours north of you. You can pay an extra $50 or so compared to what most taxis will charge you, and you're bird will look 100 x's better than anything they will turn out.

I've been crawfishing on getting birds mounted forever. I'll kill one, put it in the freezer, then say that I'm going to kill a nicer one before I spend the money...I'm going to make myself put one or two on the wall finally this year. And they won't go to anyone but Birdman, unless it was Shane Smith. To me, a bad duck mount is one of the most gut-wrenching things to see.

ill get you his number , I think it costs around 150 .Im sure there are people that are a little better like others mentioned but it just comes down to convinience and what kind of money you want to spend.

Have you been on the wood ducks alot ? seems like theres a lot this year.We've taken eight since opening day and have had flocks of around twelve coming to decoys.

I agree birdman studios is a fantastic place he has mounted 6 birds for me and they are the best i've ever seen. I have over 50 duck and goose mounts in my home and his are very well done . They are a little more expensive but worth it. YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET!!! Just for what its worth...

I have killed 26 wood ducks this year only 3 hens. So I have had many in the four corners area....
