    download (1).jpeg download.jpeg Got my Rio back this week. Built the base with a wagon wheel and fence post from my grandparents old farm. Thought it turned out great! Now just need an Osceola to complete the grand slam collection. Hopefully will connect in March when we go!

    I wouldn't change turkey taxidermist if I were you,...that's some top-shelf work in that room. Awesome work on the base too. Something to be proud of.

    Todd Lucas in Marion, KY. He has done 3 for me and will hopefully get to mount my Osceola next spring.

    Yep! I would give him a try. My group of friends and I have taken him 10+ birds and they have all turned out great. You can expect a 10-12 month wait but that doesn't bother me in the least as long as the bird comes out okay.

    Wait time is basically irrelevant to quality work.
