Does anyone know of a good taxidermist, that has reasonable rates around Elk River area? Will travel a little to get a good job on a northern.

I have a relative of mine in Coon Rapids that does fantastic work. I have a 40" Pike that he did on my wall along with a bunch of other stuff as well. I can get you photos of my pike if you'd like to see some of his work.

E-mail me if you wish.

Sorry, no one specific I can refer you to,but put up a post over in the Annandale-Buffalo-Big Lake forum,too.Someone there probably has a referral for that area being you're close to Big Lake, and Monticello.

North County Taxidermy in Coon Rapids does a great job. I have had a largemouth bass, and a walleye done by the guy, and my Mom currently has a northern there getting done that is suppose to be done any day now. Nice guy to work with, and he has a lot of work displayed at Sportsman's Warehouse in Coon Rapids as well. Email me with any questions you might have.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
