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.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
