    I just got my Canvasback mount back a couple weeks ago. Shot these two birds last fall in NE SoDak close to Thanksgiving. Just thought I would show them off. The lighting in my office is not the best for white ducks haha. It is kind of yellow. I think the birds turned out great. Great turn around time. Got them back within 3 months just for paying an extra 25 bucks a bird. Great price, great turn around, and great final product. What do you guys think?

    I think they turned out pretty nice. I like the scenery you chose for them.

    Thanks. The water was starting to freeze and it was frosty that day so I figured it made sense. Had him add the cattails and put frost on them for me too.

    Doug Gaikowski and Great Plain Taxidermy. Doug does great work. All of the mounts at our office are from him. Does great with fish and birds.
