Following a frosty morning duck hunt along a heavily wooded, trout stream-sized river – and full to the gills from mountains of home-cooked eats – Ramsey visits with buddies Dave Beck and Tyler Coleman of Kanati’s Elite Taxidermy. They talk about Pennsylvania duck hunting, especially black ducks, but then wade chest deep into the everything-you-need-know waters of professional waterfowl taxidermy. What are typical Pennsylvania duck hunting set-ups, what species are usually targeted and how consistent is the hunting? Are black duck bands usually worn from age, or are there other reasons? What are the distinguishing hallmarks of a professionals versus a hobbyist, and what kind of customer service should really be expected? What is a “trophy”? What do you need to know about handling, storing and shipping your bird of a lifetime? Whether you’re just hanging a couple memories around your office or building a museum worthy waterfowl collection, here’s everything you should know and expect about getting your hard-earned dollar’s worth.
