GENERAL INFO

      As with all my mounts, I take GREAT pride in my game head mounts.  A combination of time proven methods, the highest quality materials and some new, innovative techniques that I have developed help me in producing a long lasting, beautiful shoulder mount.
     There are no short-cuts to a  high quality mount.  I rely on a large library of reference photos, casts, notes and measurements that I have collected over the 25 years I have been in taxidermy to make each mount look as close to the live animal as I possibly can.  Special attention is given to details and expression of the nose, eyes and ears.  Every mount is glued to form using a very strong adhesive, assuring that it will remain unchanged for many years to come.  All capes are professionally tanned at a reputable tannery that I have used for over 15 years.  The hides are clean with great stretch and strength, allowing me to return your mount to it's original size. 
    I offer a huge selection of poses for any mount and can alter any pose into a truly unique, one-of-a-kind mount.  Any wall mount can also be done as a pedestal mount and habitat can be added to increase the appeal.  Check out the photos and the other information or e-mail me with specific questions.



Completion Time
The quality of your mount is ALWAYS my top priority. This has been the foundation of my business from the very beginning.  And it is the reason that so much of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.  Remember,  the mount you get back from the taxidermist is the visible memory of your outdoor accomplishment.  When you look at your mount,  it will take you back to that day  in the woods, or on the lake, when your luck and skill came together.  How long did you have to wait for that trophy? You finally got that once in a lifetime buck  that we all dream about. So when you look at it 5, 10 or 25 years from now, will you still see a beautiful example of God's creation and the work of a craftsman, or will you wish you had taken a little more time in selecting a taxidermist?

 When the gun is put away and the pictures are in the drawer, your mount will be on the wall for all to see.  There is no short-cut for experience and no substitute for a taxidermist that takes pride in his work. 

OUR AVERAGE COMPLETION TIMES

1.    Fish, birds, mammals and gameheads are usually completed in  18- 24 months.
2.    Antler mounts and Fish Reproductions are generally completed in  3 - 6 months
3.    Repairs, turkey tails & other odd jobs are usually finished in  1-6 months.         
4.    Tanning is finished on average in 4 months


Please remember :

1.  Mounts are done in groups in the approximate order that they came in.
2.  Mounts without deposits are skipped.   Period.
3.  80% of my annual work comes in from Oct. - Dec. and I cannot complete it all on "schedule"
4.  The quality of my work is a higher priority than the completion time.
5.  I have MANY customers, this is all I do for a living and I am doing the best I can for every mount & every client.
6.  Calling frequently, stopping by or becoming impatient will NOT get your mount done quicker - it will get your mount cancelled.
I thank you for your patience and understanding.
