    Default Waterfowl taxidermists

    Who do you guys/gals recommend for waterfowl mounts in Alaska? Ideally someone that specializes in birds and doesn't have more than a year turn around. I've searched and come up with a few threads, but they're like 5 years old. Thanks!

    I was going to say Ed as well. He's the only one that I would recommend.

    Thanks, yes I saw his name a lot when I did my search. A couple posts I found make me hesitant though

    I have had Rick do several of my birds and I have always been very happy with how they turned out

    Ed did a mount for me a couple years back. It turned out great and I'm very pleased with it. Kicker was it took a year and a half to get them back from him when I was quoted 6 months on the front end. Needless to say I wasn't happy about that part of it. May have taken longer if I hadn't been calling every month after the 6 month mark and getting excuses every time. Finally got them back though and like I said they look great. Not positive I'd use him again though, unless his turnaround times have improved.
