    Another Dumb Ass comment from I W.

    Good on your buddy.
    Fur n Feathers , Ganders, are a couple in Surrey. Both used to do beautiful work.

    What did your bud get, a Rare Drake Shoveler, Drake Woody? Big Northern Drake Mallard or Pin?

    What blows me away is the Price of bird Taxidermy. 50 years ago we were doing them for 20 bucks lol. Roosters 25......

    I've seen some darn nice Mallard mounts done as the duck would flare on landing...

    Better than a full mount from John Horgan!!!

    Ganders in Surrey used to be a great place to deal with; just haven’t been there in a few years. They did an owl for me and it turned out great.

    I'm getting a FULL body mount done of this fine specimen!



    Just for reference sake,,,,shot with a 177 pellet out of a savage Arms .22 caliber rifle, 4X scope at 15 yards,,,,,no rest!

    ALSO: PM sent to OP about a taxidermist that does good work at a very good price! And quickly, too.

    Re: Duck taxidermy

    I was trying to be helpful. Squirrel taxidermy can look quite good when done tastefully.



    When in doubt, just pin it.

    That's a pretty sweet off-hand shot. Did you have to track it, or was it DRT?

    FYI, looks like it's in good condition, so a rug might be in order.
    When in doubt, just pin it.
