I have been a customer of Cuss Creek Taxidermy for years now. I enjoy the great relaxed and easy going environment. I have always been overwhelmed by the pride in the work. I have got to the point where I let Danny come up with his own creativity and ideas to bring my trophies to life. I have had many comments on my life size bear that I have displayed and basically built a new house around. I spend much time in the field and when it pays off I trust in no one but Danny to bring my trophies to life to display proudly in my home. In the future, I know that any trophy I collect, it will be mounted by Danny. My walls are running out of space as I am always curious to see what Danny will do with my work next, and I am yet to have two deer look the same like they were just thrown together. Danny takes pride in each mount to make them all unique.
Danny Mikkonen recently completed a beautiful shoulder mount of a whitetail that I had shot in an area near Swan Plain, Saskatchewan. The mount was a true representation of what I had seen that blustery and frigid morning. Danny asked several questions in regards to how I intended to display the mount then made recommendations for me to consider. Then the end result is a mount that I am quite proud of and eager to display to my family and friends. Danny met the time schedule for completion and shipped the mount in a custom made box that held the mount safe and secure. Danny Mikkonen is as good as his word.
I have been outfitting here in Saskatchewan for 13 years and having a good taxidermist to send my clients to, has always been an issue. It is something I do as a service for my clients but end up getting a lot of unnecessary complaints and phone calls about. I started sending my clients to Danny at Cuss Creek Taxidermy about 6 years ago and haven’t had a complaint yet! The first year I used Danny I had 3 or 4 people make a point of saying how happy they were with his work, something that never happened in the past. Two things that I think are very important when dealing with a taxidermist are quality of work and timely work, two things Danny excels at.
My brother-in-law Perry Keller and I run Jim Lake Outfitters out of Usherville, Saskatchewan. Danny of Cuss Creek Taxidermy has done lots of work for us and our clients which come in from all over Canada, the United States and Mexico. We receive nothing but positive feedback from clients who use Cuss Creek Taxidermy for their mounts. We also display Danny’s work at our camp.
Danny does exceptional work and his detailing is beautiful. His prices are competitive and by far one of the best taxidermists in the area. Danny comes out to the camp to meet the hunters and make them feel comfortable. He is proven trustworthy with the hunters trophies. His turnaround time for mounts is roughly 8 months to a year.
We recommend Cuss Creek Taxidermy to all of our clients.
