Taxidermist

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys..one of the kids in my neighborhood caught a nice northern that is going to go on the wall. His folks asked me about good taxidermists in the area, I know of some really good bird/deer one's, but not so much fish. Any one have any recommendations? It won't be a replica mount.

Also, do you know what they typically will charge per inch for fish?

Thanks!!

Sidecar panfish guy is doing taxidermy now. I think his name is Troy Pike and I think he lives in Byron. Just a thought...

I just got a pheasant back from a guy named Bill Archer over by Mantorville. It was my son's first pheasant. He does lots of deer and was doing a bobcat when I was there. I'm not sure how many fish he does. He would be in the Kasson-Mantorville phone book. I thought his price was right in the ball park of the rest of the guys. Also worth a visit to his place as he raises trophy bucks for hunting and breeding.

I would trongly recommend Tom's Taxidermy in Clarksgrove. Yes a bit of a drive, but well worth it. Champion taxidermist and competition Judge.

Nothing, but top notch.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
