Taxidermist for turkey
« on: March 26, 2017, 05:20:59 PM »
I am looking for a recommendation on a taxidermist for a turkey mount. My regular taxidermist does not do turkeys. I live in Duvall

Leon Mathews is a great choice for anything with feathers. If getting it to Tri Cities works, you'll love the finished mount.
If you've ever had a wild game roast in your airport carry-on, you might be a redneck.

Here's my Willow Creek Taxidermy turkey from a few years back. Unfortunately for us, he retired a few years back. Love the birds he did for me. I think this was one of his last turkeys.

John, if you see this, every time I go in my office, I get to admire your work!

Leon or Birdman are always great choices. I had mine done by a local guy in Monroe. Unfortunately he doesn't take clients he doesn't already know.

Another vote for leon. I just dropped off some ducks a couple months ago and he had some turkeys that looked amazing. If it has feathers I am taking it to leon.
