Let's see those mounts!

Postby Ichabod97 » Wed Jun 27, 2012 4:43 am

I haven't seen a thread in here about this, so how about it. Show off those mounts you guys have of that perfect duck, huge rack or just whatever you had done.

I'll start it off. Shot this Blue Wing Teal in STA-5 WMA (Stormwater Treatment Area) near Palm Beach, FL in January during the 2010-2011 season.

I currently have a drake Widgeon from this past season at the taxidermist right now, hopefully picking him up this weekend.

Thanks, Tim Schloss Taxidermy up in Erie. He's the real deal.

I like those redheads.

Some fine looking mounts there gentlemen! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: My goal now is to put at least one bird on the wall each season. So far i have had luck the last two. Hoping to get a few more this year and hopefully add my first set of antlers this upcoming year.

MarkD......Nice mount. I'm usually not a fan of the dead mounts, but that is VERY NICE and looks great.

George Hipes of Tailfeathers Taxidermy here in Richmond did this for me. The pictures don't do it justice.
