Van Dyke's Taxidermy Kit

4 posts in this topic

Was wondering if anyone had used Van Dyke's Taxidermy Kit on anything they had shot? They have waterfowl, fish, deer, and turkey mounts. I saw them at Cabela's. I'd like to see a taxidermy forum on here, but I doubt that'll happen as this site has taxidermy sponsors.

Van Dykes has been in the taxidermy shop supply business for years. I have seen thier products used in their kits and they may not be the #1 best out there but, they will get the job done for you. I believe that Cabelas bought this company out not that long ago.

I do a lot of taxidermy as a hobby and I'm not too fond of most "kits". Order a few taxidermy supply catalogs and go from there. If you want a taxidermy forum check out taxidermy.net. There is months and months worth of reading on there about every single topic you could ever think of.

I have two turkey tails and beards mounted on their turkey kits. They are black walnut with a laser engraved flying gobbler on them. I'm real happy with the way they look.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
