Question Duck Taxi- Conroe

Looking for a local taxi with good recommendations. I already reached out to Texantax who did some for me in the past but said heís booked up.

Any recommendations?

You need to ask Curt where they take their birds. The ones in the office are very nice!

HoustonHunter- Have you tried Sportsmans Memories in Grapeland? If I am remembering correctly from your past posts, you hunt in Lovelady. Sportsmans Memories is not that far from you.

Big Nate and Little Nate are real nice and have done a great job for me in the past. I haven't ever taken them a duck but they have done 5 or 6 deer for me. They will send pics and references for past work.

They are both big time duck hunters. Their day job is taxidermy but their hobby is waterfowl. I think they can do you a good job.

I know quite a few people that have used Southern Wing. The ones I have seen turned out really good.

They have done two deer for me as well. I may use them but may check with a few local here, too.

Thanks everyone!

Lowell would be my first choice. Did a bang up job on a red head a couple years ago. I'll pay him whatever ot takes to get him to do more in the future. And yes, his artwork is amazing without a doubt. Need some of that too!

Give Joe and Joey at Sportsmen's Taxidermy a call! I have 3 ducks with them right now.

They are in the same center as AGR

15926 Cypress N. Houston Rd. (at 290)
STE 200
Cypress, TX 77429
281-583-5560

Buy a face to face ticket to the Tomball DU Dinner and receive $100 off your duck mount between now and Feb. 1, 2018 - they will also be accepting ducks on Feb. 1 at the Tomball DU Dinner

I can sell you a ticket...
