Experience and Imagination

Quality taxidermy is much more than simply wrapping a skin around a commercially manufactured form. A quality taxidermist tailors the manikin precisely for your trophy. With a little imagination and the experience of mounting thousands of animals, we create a striking pose that depicts the true nature of the animal in its outdoors environment.

Bringing Your Trophy to Life

Our strong work ethic and experience ensures that your specimen is delivered on schedule. See CUSTOM TAXIDERMY.
