Good Turkey Taxidermist in TN?
« on: February 10, 2011, 01:44:53 PM »
Before the board went down someone on here mentioned a really good turkey taxidermist which I'm pretty sure was located in Tennessee.  When I checked out his webpage his work looked outstanding and I can't find the website anymore (don't remember the name).  I thought it was Birds Only but I checked and it wasn't him.  This guy offered a 3 day class where he taught you some of the art.  I remember the website he only takes about 40 birds per year.  I also remember the site having pictures of his family on it as well and most of the pictures looked they were taken in a finished basement and I believe there was a big screen tv in there as well.  Sorry for all the random little bits of information but I tried to list as much as I could remember. Does this sound familiar to anyone?  I was really interested in his 3 day class but I can't locate the site anymore.  Any help would be GREATLY appreciate.

Thanks,
-Derick

There was a member from TN that posted up pics of his work just before the crash.  I think his name included TN in it, but I can't locate him in the list.  He may not have signed back up.

You could probably do a search in the Taxidermy.net bird forum and find him, but I'm not certain he's a member there.

Thanks, I believe you're right, I think he did have some pics posted up on here before the crash.  Hopefully I can locate him or someone will know who I'm talking about.  Thanks again for your help!

Hey John!  Thanks, it def. was your website!  When I was googling Birds Only taxidermy it was taking me to your old site.  I sent you an email.  I'm glad you found my post on here.

Thanks,

John,  :welcomeOG: Plus I just went to your site. I talked with you awhile back. You were just way to far away for me. But I love your work. That bird gobbling on a limb is awesome. Glad to see you on here. See ya, Mike
