Thanks BigMike! And as you can see from Ians posting,, there is a lot of ART work under the skin as well as over it involved, and it can easily go array, astray and otherwise wrongly! Common thing to argue taxidermy as an art vs trade. The difference is obvious between the tradesmen and artists.

You're welcome Ron! I've seen some stuff in person as well that left a lot to be desired. A lot of people seem to think they can wash their own windows too, but they don't typically look as good as mine!

But has Ron turned any of his artworks into RC helicopters, like this Danish artist?

No i havent done a quad cat yet...


But heres one of the small bennies of being a taxidermist: A customer/friend just dropped by with a sack full of: elk chops, pork chops, wild caught coho and king salmon, smoked salmon, halibut, antelope sausage and burger.!!! The salmon is deep orange red,, and NO co2 was used in its processing,,100% organic. Caught off Prince sound AK..


Hes also so happy with his remounted antelope and wall habitat he now wants all of his heads re-done with wall mount habitats..

Finally made it to Ron's shop yesterday, to meet the man hisself and drop off a pine marten roadkill from Tahoe City. Very impressive stuff going on that little shop.

Here's the "before" of the marten, all 26" and 2 lb, 7 oz of him (here's another shot for scale). I can't wait to see the "after!"

Hey Ron,

Must have missed the thread. Have only viewed a few photos. Great work! My friend I grew up with has a taxidermy business (just noticed). I haven't popped in yet, partly cause I haven't seen him in 26 years and live half a continent away. I need to check him out next time. He was there when I caught a 28 inch chain pickerel 28 years ago. It was 2 ounces(???) shy of the state record.

I got it "mounted" as my 12 yr old b-day gift (biggest catch of anything at the time). I forgot about it after high school but found it in Mom's attic 10 years ago. I've been a high school biology teacher for 9 years now and its proudly presented in my classroom. While not a "trophy fish" it was beautifully done and begs questions/ conversations from students and parents alike year after year.

Cheers!!!

S...

Yep.. Tuna, dolphin fish, marlin, sail fish etc etc. Did a bunch on smaller reef fish for a nature center - all reproductions. Some were fantastic colors!

Check this out, curious to here your perspective Ron:

Officers seize parakeet at border

Posted: Jan 22, 2014 6:21 PM MST

By Breann Bierman
(Source: U.S. Customs and Border Protection)

NOGALES, AZ (CBS5) -
Authorities have seized a live pet parakeet found inside a camera bag about to make its way across the border.

Customs and Border Patrol agriculture specialists assigned to the Tucson Field Officer seized the animal under the Animal Health Protection Act.

The 41-year-old California man attempting to enter the U.S. with the bird was fined.

The bird was turned over to USDA-Veterinary Service.

CBP said all birds brought into the U.S., with the exception of Canada, must be quarantined for 30 days at a USDA bird quarantine facility.

Birds are regulated since they can carry the viral and bacterial diseases.


(Article fails to mention that birds can fly and routinely ignore such things as international borders).

I keep thinking about preserved Lenin and Mao...
Seen Lenin back when I was 11--looked pretty fresh...way ahead of shrunken head technology.
