Any questions on prices or any specialized pieces, poses or design you have in mind, please give me a call at (613)476-7981 or e-mail me.

50% Deposit required before the initiation of work.  The rest owing upon completion, inspection and return of the finished piece.

Free assessment of any specimen for its suitability for taxidermy.  If you are not sure if your bird is still good to be mounted due to length of time in the freezer, damage or bacterial action, I will thaw and assess the condition of the specimen.  If the specimen is not suitable for taxidermy, I will refund any deposit.

A selection of quality artificial rocks are available in various sizes.  The addition of a rock to a scene at an additional cost of $40 to $70 depending on the size of rock.

To the right are examples of mounts on rocks in a scene or on their own.

Contact me for more explanation on the cost for mounts on rocks.

I also offer an option of basswood slab backings for wall mounts or bases for table mounts.  

An additional $10 cost for basswood slabs while supplies last.
