Looking to get a mallard mounted. Reading/Lanc.

I have a female mallard im looking to get mounted. I already have a drake mounted on a scenery, and want to add the female to it. Looking for a good job that wont break the bank in the reading/lancaster area. Stopped by 2 taxidermist within a 10 minute drive from my house and was not happy with looking at the work in the office. Let me know if you, or someone you know is good at ducks and willing to take my mallard.

Thanks

How were the prices/turn around time of those places? Price is not a big deal for a good job, I paid $375 for my drake mallard with a scenery by Smith taxidermy in reinholds pa. So anything in the 200 range is good for me.

I can vouch for these 2 guys. I know them both. Both are in the Master's of Master's division in taxidermy competitions. Both are also judges in taxidermy competitions.
