:smile: it depends on how you have the bird wrapped in your freezer on how long the bird will last, as for reasonably priced it depends on what ur idea of reasonable is...every taxidermist is different, my dad does large ducks for under 70.00 and small ducks cheaper...


Remember if ya cant tell what it is before ya shoot, dont pull the trigger :thumbsup:

as long as you have it wrapped pretty good then any decent taxidermist will be able to work with it. my guy charges $180 for a woodduck. had mine wrapped in 1 garbage bag and it was in the freezer for about 6 months before i brought it to him. you should be ok.

ah well everyone has thier opinions i spose but when ya get stuck havin to sew the birds head back together bc the joker who shot it got a bit trigger happy and damned near blew it off its not gonna look 100% so in saying that what he had left of the bird its a pretty damned good mount :smile: and ya have to consider. thats old taxidermy nothing plastic in that bird so its not gonna look like everyone else's....

Ask around at sporting goods stores in your area. Also look at samples. Like agengo02 said, you get what you pay for. Put two mounts of the same type next to each other, and you will be able to pick out the better quality, and usually more expensive of the two. You want it to look like a live bird. Not a dead one on your wall.

Why limit yourself to taxidermists in your area? Its the year 2007! Today, you search the web for quality and mail your birds out to your taxi of choice!
