    My son doesn't know it yet, but his 1st bird (the spoonie) and his 3rd duck (the mallard) were very nicely and professionally done by Mr. Laaker of Brad's bird's taxidermy in Godfrey, Illinois.

    I doubt he needs the business as his shop appears full, but this man has gone above and beyond for me. I thank him for that and highly recommend his services.

    WHAT???!!! No black & white birds! Shame on you, El Presidenti!

    Nice surprise for the lad. Now I'll have to take back HALF the bad things I've said about you...and that's considerable.

    Brad is outstanding, would not have a bird done by anybody else.
    He has a Brewers duck I shot last year.

    Hey Brad,:clap
