St Cloud Area Duck Taxidermist

15 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a quality waterfowl taxidermist in the St Cloud area - any recommendations? I'm not really concerned with the price...just want the duck done right. Thanks!

Nice mount...I like that. If you don't mind, what did that run you?

That seems like a good price. He's $75 more than that now with a 8-12 month turn around. $425 if you want it in 1-2 months. Look at the website.

Just don't go to Scott's.

Animal Arts Taxidermy in Golden Valley does really nice ducks too..not exactly St Cloud area but an option. I think he charges around $250 as well.

Jerry Froerlic at Flyway Taxidermy is one of the best in the area. Be willing to pay a little more to get a piece back that you will be proud to display and will last a lifetime. Thats who I learned the trade from. He is a great guy to boot.

He's someone I found in the paper right in St. Cloud when I was younger and going to school without much money lying around. My 4 curled mallard was only around a hundred bucks but I told him I wanted it flying and when it finally came back much later than he promised it was sitting. Of course he couldn't find the receipt to prove how I wanted it. mad.gif

Oh trust me I learned my lesson. Like I said I was young and didn't have the money. Jerry at flyway will be mounting the white mallard.

I would also say jerry at flyway does an excellent job. He did a redhead for me last year and it turned out pretty sweet. my buddy also has 5 mounts that he did and all turned out good.

tippman, the reason i asked i just took 6 perch from winnie we got last march to a taxedermist named scott. he has done a chucker and a pheasant for me in the past and im happy with them and im real fussy when it comes to good taxi work. hope this isnt the same scott, if it is hes not bad now.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
