My experience with Shane Smith of Artistic Compositions was excellent. At the end of last season (2003/04), I sent a nice drake pintail and wigeon to his shop after looking long and hard for a taxidermist that does quality work on waterfowl. I just received the mounts back and they are beautiful. The service was fantastic and included good communication, straight forward billing, packaging and shipment across the country. I would certainly recommend Artistic Compositions to any waterfowler who seeks a quality mount. Shane will be seeing more business from me in the future when trophy birds are taken.
