KS Canvasback Taxidermist

Postby DanJeffandJack » Thu Dec 20, 2012 6:52 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.

BirdmanStudios, I know you're on the forum here. What would be the turnaround time typically if I were to send it out to you? Also saw there was a 90 day turnaround time for 100 dollars and would consider that.

My taxi has done a ton of them. I am a simple mount kind of guy.

I don't have a closer pic, I ran out of room in my place for mounts so they live in a sporting goods shop until we get moved.
