Taxidermist for pheasants

9 posts in this topic

Digging through the freezer to figure out all the stuff I need to eat before I graduate in May and move to the cities and found the rooster that I wanted to mount and figured I better get on that...

Who in the area is good for pheasants? Any suggestions? This is an ND bird from my dogs first year and will be my first pheasant mount.

I would try Mark Moratis, Moratis Taxidermy, down in Ottertail. He does a nice job on birds. You can see his mounts in the new Scheels store in Fargo. I believe most of the pheasants in store were mounted by him. He also does a great job with the habitat bases he mounts the birds on.

I know a guy who does good work in Pelican rapids. He's been doing it for years in his garage but just opened a shop. I'll have to get the name of his shop if your interested.

I would strongly suggest J&K Taxidermy from between south Fargo and Hickson on Hwy 81. I recently had them do a Prairie Chicken for me, excellent work. They have also done work for my grandfather and another friend from Whitetail to bobcats. Their work is second to none, but dont expect to have your bird done and returned in a couple of months as they are very busy people.

I would recommend Johnson Taxidermy near Wheaton. Does a nice job and is VERY reasonable.

Would that possibly be Rich Ness? If it is he also works at the Pub. He has done fish for me and has done a good job. I've also seen some of his deer mounts.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
