View Full Version : Some new taxidermy

Well just got back a few birds we got done up.

A very very fat beautiful drake mallard, a true northern migrating one. We shot a pair of them that came in, the other roasted up great :smile:


And a pair of specks that Matt and I shot in Region 3 while on our big game hunt. Even on a big game hunt, w seem to always find waterfowl somehow. Good thing we pack shotguns and steel loads incase.

Terry Briskham out in Agassiz. Very good pricing I have to say. Both dead mounts are absolutely superb. They look awesome.

I like the "Falling Out of The Sky" look. Very unique. :smile:

They do look like they're falling out of the sky dont they but actually the look is called a dead mount, supposed to look more like how the birds look after a hunt when you hang em up. Its a very popular style for waterfowl mounts.

The taxidermist kept saying how guys wanted to know when he'd finish those mounts, and he kept saying they are done. I guess most guys havent seen that style.

I was down at the vancouver gun club a couple of weeks back and they had a three bird hanging mount. A Mallard, wood duck and a pintail. Was pretty kewl looking. Wasn't a northerner like yours though. I like this. I am going to have to keep it in mind.

I recently saw this style of mount on an american Taxidermy website. I have to say that it looks awesome. Congrats on some beautiful mounts.

what does it cost to get a duck mounted?

12-21-2008, 11:34 AM
Depending on where you go, probably anywhere from $200-450 is what I've been quoted.

I guess it depends on how cute the duck is.......:biggrin:

Really like the dead mounts!!! I have seen them mounted on an old piece of barn board for that added touch. I have also seen the multiple species and thought they look very good

My brother has planned his mount out for awhile. We just gotta pull down an old barn door from our hay loft and a bunch of geese are gonna be dead mounted against the barn door. Should make for an awesome looking mount inside.
