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 often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
