Postby shsuhunter » Mon Feb 04, 2013 3:28 pm

He's high, but im willing to bet that if you take him a bird that you will be bringing him more. He's a really nice guy and has a lot to offer. He charges $250 but you WILL get what you pay for.
One of the best in the area and he also used to teach taxidermy at a college. If you need in touch with him, let me know and i can get you a #

Anybody use palermos taxidermy for birds? We've taken him deer and he does a great job with big game mounts but I am hesitant to take him birds, since I know he has someone else do them not in his shop.
