    Default Waterfowl Taxidermist

    Looking for recommendation for a good waterfowl taxidermist. I don't see a lot of guys that specialize in birds in Alaska.

    Default Flyway Taxidermy

    I can highly recommend Jerry Froelich, owner of Flyway Taxidermy. http://www.flywaytaxidermy.com/
    He is out of Minnesota, and hands down is the best waterfowl taxidermist I have ever seen. Waterfowl is what he specializes in, and I don't think he even does any other work. You will not be disapointed with him.

    Rich Dykema, He is based out of Soldotna. He does EXCELLENT work. Take a look at his website www.bird-taxidermy.com.

    I have also heard very good things about Rich. He is friends with a buddy of mine and before he knew he did taxidermy, my buddy was like "how did you get that close!!" when he showed him a few pictures. If they look that real, I guess ya did good!

    Default Check out about alaska wildlife taxidermy

    I'd give Larry a call at About Alaska Wildlife Art in Palmer. Here's his website http://aboutalaskawildlifeart.com/

    He did a mallard mount for me. There is a picture in my photo album if you want to check it out.

    Default Knights

    I am not sure who Knights uses, but I have had several birds mounted by him and they are awesome. I have several pheasant that I think are some of the best mounts that i have seen.
    I do know it is a guy out of Big Lake that Knights sends there stuff too. They do great work.

    The guy in Big Lake is Birds by Ed. I think burke used him for some ptarmigan last winter. Maybe see what he thought. There was a thread about it, but I cant seem to find it now.
