DS,
What part of the state are you located?
Around the Charlotte area, I'd recommend Drew Cornelison :thumbsup: or Eric Perry :thumbsup: .
Around the Rolly area, I'd recommend Neil Pate :thumbsup: .
Around the New Bern area, I'd recommend Page Nethercutt :thumbsup: .

Good luck...

I will second eric perry and page nethercutt. I will add mark benfield. Dont skimp on a mount and try to get out cheap just for the sake of saving some money. While its understandable to do so, you get what you pay for. I went the cheap route for along time, and years later i look at some of my mounts and wish i had someone else do them. Dont make the same mistake

Mark Marshall is located in Northeastern NC and he does quality work. 252-453-3691 is his home number. Not sure where yer located but he's worth the money in IMO. I don't think he advertises and has all the work he can handle. Good luck with yer mount.

I have been using Brandon Gilmore. These are the last 3 mounts I got back from him. He does good work. He works 5 minutes from Jordan Lake. Look him up on Facebook at Wildfowler Taxidermy or private message me for his number.

Gary Vaughn with hunters haven in Scott's hill did an awesome job on a pair of mallards for me a few years back. Check out his site. Tons of pics. What species is it?

yes he has a way of attaching the birds to the gun without ruining the gun, if you would like to talk to him about it i can give you his number. do you want more pics of that mount of more pics of some of his work?

Here's a few of those mallards Gary did for me. His prices are competitive but as the saying goes you definitely get what you pay for. With that being said I know with his work you won't be disappointed. Being as you're in Jacksonville he's just 20 or 30 minutes down the road from you. Check him out.

ive got a guy local that does the most beautiful work i have ever seen and that is side by side comparison to my Hoodie that birdman studios did for me. I have an old gun that is no good, think it will have to go behind the Bull Can i got in North dakota this year. thanks for the idea MM

Another vote for Eric Perry. I met Eric when he bought my boat and he mounted a redhead for me I had in the freezer. Needless to say, he will have all of my work from here on out.
