Thanks to Lowell Shapley for doing a fantastic job on the mounting. A big thank you to Richard Flanakin for putting me on them.

Ho lee crap!! That’s simply perfect

I would have had the drake (woodie) with wings unfurled is the only change I’d make. But really, it’s greatness.

Those look great. Nice detail.
I used Bass Taxidermy in TC for years. Randy and his dad did wonderful work. But the turn around time now is a joke. So looking for another place to use. Might give him a try

What's his turn-around time? I dropped my bluewing off with Lowell in late January and I'm excited to see the quality work he puts out. (I'm in no way expecting it to be done anytime soon, I'm just curious how long he usually takes).
