    I'm looking to get a full strut mount and I have no idea who I should take it to. Any suggestions?

    Shawn Whitehead from Nicholasville is one of the best around. He's won the grand masters at the NWTF every year since I started going (which has been 4 years).

    From a full-time taxidermist who has mounted dozens of turkeys, nobody in the world is better than Brett at Boondocks. He's not cheap but he's as good as they get.

    Brett at Boonedocks, in Boaz KY. He's done a few of mine & makes my other turkey mounts look bad. In the end it's only a difference of a few hundred bucks, but it's worth it when consider you'll be looking at them the rest of your life. You get what you pay for.

    I would have to put a vote in for Brett also. I had him do this bird several years ago and still looks great.

    No it's not fake. It is freeze dried and I might of lightened it up a little to much in the photo editing trying to make it show up. It's not the sky blue color that it is showing on the pic.

    Call Shawn. You won't be sorry. Brett is a good choice if you don't want to travel but if you are willing to travel a little, you couldn't be happier than with Shawn's work.
