Looking for a taxidermist

Postby rlgilby » April 20th, 2008, 11:00 am

I am looking for a taxidermist that has done a wall mount, similar the this picture.  I am from Minnesota and live in the Twin Cities, please email me with potential Taxidermist.

if you only knew how easy it was to do a mount like this and how much money you would save by doing it yourself you would be amazed..
cut the wingbuts off at the joint and cut your fan off like you normally would.. pin them on some cardboard so they are all fanned out.... get all the meat you can off of the joints and borax  the cut.....
leave for a week or so and buy one of those heads from cabelas or basspro.. they come exactly like that one. and arrange how you want..

Tom,
 
Thanks for the reply, I know for some it might be easy.  But I want it to look like it was done by a professional.  I will be only be doing this once.

tom... SOOO easy to do..  and it looks good...buy a fake head and pin your tail and wings on cardboard for a week with borox.....
either that or spend 300 bucks and dont get it back for  8 months..
a fan and wing will dry in about a week.

Cake. Like he said. Look at some pics on the internet and make yours like it if all you want is the visual effect.
