cost of mount

Recommended Posts

How much will it cost about to get a ringneck mounted. Also I've heard that if a duck still has pin feathers that they will fall out after a couple of years is this true or false. Thanks in advance.

haven't heard anything about the pin-feather theory, but I guess I've only heard about mounting prime adult birds so maybe that is the case.

I got a goldeneye mounted two years back from a local guy who does phenomenal work and is regarded as one of the top guys in the midwest. I think I payed $275 or so for it and that included the driftwood it was mounted on. email me at indy500as at hotmail dot (Contact Us Please) if you want his contact info. He specializes in waterfowl and it shows.

There's a guy around here that can do a sitting mount for about $90 and a flying mount for about $95 and he does a great job. These area few that I had him do for me so you can see what kind of job he acctually does. IM000305-1.jpgIM000304-1.jpgIM000303-1.jpgIM000306.jpg

If you're interested I can get you his name and all of his contact information. He's acctually doing 6 other ducks for me right now. Of course the habitat scenes will run a bit more I thin the double flying redheads ran me about $185 and the swimming canvasback was about $120 and the triple woodducks mount was a bit more pushing around $370. The sitting hood was only $85, So he's very reasonable the only bad thing is it takes him a while to get things done. It's usually about 1 year for a duck mount so that might be a deterant but he does do really nice work.

Whitewolf, great collection of duck mounts you have going!! I'm impressed! I have a pair of woodies from opener that I need mounted if anybody knows of someone reasonable in the metro area I'd be happy to know who I could call.

Hey Buzzsaw-

A pair of woodies like this?

woodducks9ug.jpg

The guy that did these is a relative of mine and is arguably very good at what he does. He's in the northern metro. There are a number of other FM guys that highly praise his work as well if you search back.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to get them for $100 a bird.

Chris-

If your talking about your uncle, I would agree, his stuff looked pretty good. His fish, deer and birds all looked great. He had some pheasants there that he had finished and they looked good. I asked him what they ran just in case I knock down a nice ring neck this year. I want to say that he told me $150 to $225 per bird depending on the mount and if there was drift wood included ect.

Can anyone post a pic of a mounted redhead that shows the breast? I shot one this weekend, and didn't think that it look mature enough, the breast wasnt quite all white. I would like to see how uniform of a color a mature redhead's breast is. Thanks

well if the breast is white it is not mature the breast color of a mature red head is black, the very under belly is a off white to light grey color, and the sides and back are a dark grey to almost silverlooking on the sides.

white wolf

the cinnamon was shot in mexico and the (bluewing) it is actualy a New Zeland Shoveler from a game farm, if you look at the bill it is the shape of a shoveler just smaller, and the eyes are yellow not brown like a bluewing teal, I can try to post a front pic if you want to truly see the diff.

I meant to say belly not breast. The breast was all black and the sides were grety. It was probably more mature than I thought. Oh well, hopefully I will get another one this weekend.

TRM,

In the second picture what is the "glass" made of? I have a friend that wants something like that for a fish mount. I am hoping it is acrylic, need to put a good size hole in it. my email is haapojam@bsci.com.

Thanks for any information you can give.

      I took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together. Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

      Losing Sue is a great loss to the lake community and all of those that had a chance to interact with her. My young daughter has had to deal with a few close losses in our family this year/winter already, so she will be really sad to find out next spring that her favorite "ice cream lady' is no longer with us as well. Sue and Ron were always part of the experience of coming up north. Like many others I'm sure, my wife got corner by Sue last summer about how we needed to buy Moosebirds! I'll miss seeing Sue's smile each time we walk in the door to pick up some random forgotten item, for ice cream, or to find something "Moosebirds" to take home and support a good friend.

      Not sure how everyone else is drilling their holes with the k drill, but I have the 8" on a clam drill plate with the M18 fuel drill and don't have any problems with the drill overheating or the bit not cutting.  In 20" of ice, I clear the shavings 2 or 3 times during the cutting process and the drill cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Instructions on the k drill float are pretty clear that you should clear the shavings to prevent the drill from binding when cutting in thick ice.  Love my k drill!

      depends on what lake you go to i guess. i was up the weekend it was so bitter cold. very few lakes have plowed roads like winnie, red, mille lacs. there was probably 6 inches of snow on the ground and lake. the snow on the lake was drifted and had a bit of a crust to it. not sure what the warm strech did to it though. there are several bait shops you could call!!!!!!!!
    • smurfy
      wow.........i'm shocked. its 27 miles from our cabin. stopped there also snowmobiling and coming thru fishing. quiet the place. so sad to hear.

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.
