shot a blue winged teal drake this morning at shanks. He wants it mounted, but just bought a house. so money is limited. Any suggestions on who or where to take it to? i called bilbrey studio in barnhart and they said 175. Any suggestions on how to wrap it up and freeze it until he takes it there?

Tuck the head under the right or left wing and take it to B&D taxidermy, great price. Talk to billygoat about it.

look 90 is a great price and of course you will hear you get what you pay for horse muffins i tell ya.. B&D does great work and are recommended by many hunters around they charge 185 a duck.. if people would just stop beaten everyones opinion down because of the price it would a much nicer mount.. if you like what you pay for then to the heck with the rest of the opinions jmho... what i suggest is got to these places and look at their work and let the work tell you where to get it done at not the price of the work.. i have seen folks charge way to much for work that looked bad to me,but looked good to the customer. also have seen folks that charge a lot less and the customer be happy and it didnt look good to me.. honestly shop around let the work sell the taxidermist not the price i ahve always said this and so has don and billy....DONT TAKE ANYONES WORD FOR TAXI WORK GO SEE WHAT THEY CAN DO ,NOT WHAT SOMEONE ELSE TELLS THEY CAN DO...:cheers::cheers::cheers::cheers:

Don't put them in stockings the feathers will stick to the stocking and pull out when yÓu take them out. Wrap in bag and another bag.
