Has any one used them before, my cousin shot a banded bull sprig at Wister on sat. He wants to use Darius but the one year turn around from him is kinda long I know he is one of the best but that is a long time to get your bid back..or if any one has a recommendation. Thanks

IMO, Jesse from Absolute Perfection Taxidermy is one of the best when it comes to big game, specifically africian mounts. I would go w/ someone who has a knac for birds like Darius or Glass eye. Reach an agreement when you drop off your bird and get it in writing.

Breck (glass eye ) is in el centro.

Just remember who ever you choose ......Darius , Breck or any other top bird guy.....ther is a reason they have a waiting period. Because they do good work and they are in demand! You can't rush perfection.
If this bird is a true trophy and something you want to show off for years, don't get in a rush. Do your research check the different websites and see who's work you like and be patient. You can never redo a finished mount.

A year is about average for taxidermy work. Some of us are faster, some are slower. I don't do birds but the only two people I would send birds to Steve Williams in Bakersfield and Brecks--in Visalia I think. I've seen Brecks' work and had clients who had some previous mounts done by him. I've worked with Steve Williams. He goes to South America and other places just to bird watch. He is amazing with birds. He has about a year waiting period. He is getting up in years and no longer does pigs or elk so he refers anything too big to me and I send any bird work to him since he's in the same town as me. I don't know Darius or any of the others, but whomever you choose make sure you look at their work.

Jesse does good work, He's done all of my mounts, some are better than others but all in all he does good work. He gives me a pretty good deal but I usually don't press him for time, he's had a hen buffelhead and a pair of blue bills of mine for over a year.

Good luck

Check out Waterfowl Creations. Mike is a young guy who works at Turners in Fountain Valley and does great work. I have had a ring neck and a buffelhead done in the past. I am dropping off a Hungarian Partridge to him today.
