I would drive just north of Macon to Casteel Taxidermy. One of the best in the state and good prices.

I just can't say enough about Gary Braswell at True Life creations in Bainbridge. His work speaks for itself!

I agree, Roger has done several ducks for me. Don't expect them back before about a year, but they'll be flawless when you get them.

I've had birds mounted by both Rodney Casteel and Roger Browning. Both are excellent.

Harden's in Thomasville does good birds as well. I know they're kinda pricey but I think Thomasville is closer to Tifton than Macon is
