    This not a fair question. There are a great many people here who I know have a great reputation for their quality work and to leave any of them off a list would be unfair. Some I don't know, some I have met, but don't know well, and some are good friends of mine. Some are well known here and some only linger in the shadows of Taxidermy.net and are hardly known to anyone here. My list includes only those I know personally and very well and I apologize to those who I don't know as well and am leaving off my list.

    I am a bird guy, so here is my list (Not in any order):

    Tony Finazzo
    Stefan Savides
    Nancy C
    RDA (fur or feathers....great all around)
    Alex (fur or feathers....great all around)
    Lowell Shapely

    I would send work thier way in a second. In addition, they have all been very helpfull to me in learning the trade. Tony and Stephan has judged my work and givin great advise that I will never forget. Lowell gave me some top notch finishing training, and Alex, Nancy, and RDA has all traded PM's with me and helped me to consider things I never thought of.

    On the furry side of things:
    Dennis and Michael P. - Both are very "out of the box" thinkers and a great inspiration.
  18. i wouldnt argue with any of the choices made, but it baffles me that no one has metioned Brett DeFreitas at least once or twice
  19. AFWS

    AFWS The lost Robertson

    Cruickshank(all around)
    Rick Carter (whitetails)
    Timjo (fish)
    Dennis Harris(mammals)
    Randy Terry(birds)

    You guys can't count ::) skipped first grade? LOL
