Almberg Taxidermy

20 posts in this topic

Hello to all!

I'd like to introduce myself as a new member/sponsor on this great site. Located in the SW corner of Minnesota, I've owned and operated Almberg Taxidermy since 1984. My goal is to provide high quality, lifelike mounts with a reasonable turn around time. My specialties are not limited to midwestern game, fish and birds. After working with a taxidermist friend from Colorado for a number of years; I have extensive experience with western game such as elk, mule deer, antelope,lion, goats & sheep.

Please have a look at my HSOforum and or Facebook Almberg Taxidermy.

Best of luck with your hunting and fishing!

He has done my shoulder mount deer which I am nothing but thrilled with and created an absolutely stunning wall scene mount on my 30" walleye I caught last year on Lake of the Woods ice fishing.

Brian also has done many amazing lifesize mounts and is one of the best reproduction artist I have ever seen. He creates and produces incredible Antler reproductions, snake reproductions and many more. From lifesize mounts of deer, to mountain lions and other cats, European mounts and his impecible work on Elk, Brian really is a sportsmans friend. He works with you one on one like none other to creat the image you can keep forever of that special moment!!!!

Brian is also made many news publications for his famous "Piking" trademarked Viking Pike!!! Check it out on his HSOforum!!!!

And his latest passion for all of you rough fish enthusiasts his work on Aligator Gar is fabulous!!!! These giant toothy critters are amazing and Brian finishes them like none other.

A true sportsman himself, Brian is an accomplished hunter, trapper, and fisherman along with his love for hunting natural artifacts. A true believer in capturing that special moment in time for you and generations to view, Brian will produce your skin mount or replica to extremely high standards!!!!!

I had the opportunity this weekend to spend some time with BA and be ever so impressed again! Living in SW Mn can sometimes be a bit confusing to many. Crop fields as far as an eye can see, you often wonder, how could a taxidermist keep busy. It is a question I ask myself all the time. And then I found out.

Brian, being as gifted and skilled as he is has found a client base from all over the United States. From huge Gar from the south, to mighty Elk, Antelope and Mulies from the Mountains and good old Corn fed whitetails from the midwest and beyond. He has Fish from all over and even snakes from around the world.

All of these clients, all of these different species, all of the great customer care and trophy care with shipping and of course finished products.

It is totally amazing to see how a guy living on an acreage in SW Minnesota can do it. But to see the showroom and spend some time in the workplace with a true proffessional, you come to see. Almberg taxidermy is never a dull place with new and expanding lists of clients and critters!!!

Great Job BA, truly amazing.

I sent Brian a couple of pictures of a nice sunfish I caught this past summer for a replica to be made.

Brian's work is top-notch, and he kept me updated with the progress the entire time. There was an issue with the quality of the first blank Brian received. Rather than just paint it and send me something he wasn't happy with and knew that I wouldn't be happy with, he sent it back and went out of his way to find a good quality one. I will definitely be going back to Brian for any future mounts, now I just have to catch some grin

Both the Gar and the gill look great.

Very nice work Brian.

For anyone looking to have a mount done, Brian looks to be a cat that does great quality work.

    • i'll come hell ya leech!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Bureaucrate-   Correctly me if I'm wrong, weren't you a huge advocate against AIS lawd and allowing the DNR to pull over fishermen and boats for an inspection? But you are okay with them pulling over deer hunters?    Sounds like anything they do, you are against. If they said black, you'd say white...

    • Same circuit as the freezer?!! Oh no no no......!!! They kick in at the same time, and  *TRIP* Always have the pump on a separate circuit!!  As mentioned, GFCI is what code calls for, but sometimes dampness will pop one, rare, but I've seen it happen. I nixed the GFCI on mine when I ran a separate circuit for just the pump. That should solve your problem. 
    • I am from Richland Center.
      I have 2 2500 stradics in dis-repair.
      Both bales refuse to return to closed.
      Heard it may be simple as a spring.
      I am kinda cheap….if costs a lot to fix i will buy new reel. Anyone know somewhat local repair person that is reasonable?
    • Well you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.  
    • Another one thawing.  made this one for my nephew but will keep it for me. So will have another one in the brine in a couple days. 
    • It's a little early to be hitting the bottle don't you think?  Believe in Trump and you'll feel better.
    • Ok I'll save you from dying. Where can i pick it up? 
    • I use to work on all aluminum body fire trucks.  The only screw, bolt, washer, or nut that we would use was stainless steel as the by using anything else will allow electrolysis to start from dissimilar metals and corrode.  Only problem was the strength of the SS is not as high as regular steel.  Also if you are using SS, i would only use bees wax as a lube.  I use to buy it in a block, and just rub the threads on the screw before putting in the hole.  If you don't, you may find that the threads gall up and strip out.  Then you have issues cause it can be tough to drill out a broken SS screw.  If you have a bunch to do, i found that a combination drill/tap was very useful.  It will drill the hole and tap at one shot.  Here is what they look like.  Good luck. http://www.graybar.com/store/en/gb/combination-drill-tap-bits-22082167?cm_mmc=pla:google-_-googleshopping-_-gb5349-_-22082167&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Graybar>PLA>Category&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=fto6JW9w|pcrid|49843833890|pkw||pmt|&gclid=CPzt0MP72tACFYKSfgodC4MH_g
