    I used them for over 15 thousand dollars worth of work. Most was just crap not close to USA standards. The worst part was they said they could not be responsible for every piece of work that goes out of their shop. Are you kidding me? I would never use them again

    Welcome to AH...

    Your first post was a powerful one and bring one to double check references both good and bad.

    Here is a link to some pictures someone took of the shop sign and the work.
    You judge for yourself.
    Look at the close up shot if the Eland. Look at the eyes.

    Now, I have no idea who is doing the taxidermy now vs when these pictures were taken.

    Webshots Outdoors, for the best in wildlife photography!


    Do a Search on the net and you can see what some other people have posted.

    This is another spelling of the name you might use.
    "Moredou Taksidermie"


    Good Luck

    Bearhunter,
    Give Craig Pidduck a call with Bull's Eye Taxidermy in S.A. I cannot say enough good about Craig and his company. I used Bull'e Eye to mount 17 different animals that my wife and I took in Zim and Kwa-Zulu Natal back in 2007. We had 7 of them done "full mount" and they are the focal point of our trophy room. Every person that see's them are very impressed with the quality and workmanship. I am very "picky" when it comes to my taxidermy, so I was leary about using someone in S.A. to do my work. No more. Bull's Eye and Craig will get all of my Africa work, without hesitation.

    I can directly comment on this shop. I spent an afternoon in this shop on a tour as part of my PH course.
    I have seen a lot of shops from here and there.
    From rotting tanks to salt shed and show room this is a good organization.
    He has excellent specimens in the show room and I was quite impressed with the quality.

    I did not hunt close by so I did not use Craig.
    If I hunt near Vaalwater in the future he will get a call.

    I am using moredou now for the trophys we took.Having some mounted by them others just dip and pack.I figure with the prices I am not getting comp. mounts but there work looked good.Plus jacque said there work is very nice.If i had world records I would bring them back to the states to have work done.I think we have some great tax. here in the states but you really pay for it also.So far they keep in touch and answer all my question fast.They hope to be shipping my stuff early june.have my fingers crossed all goes well.

    I just asked a fellow hunter in BC to send me some pictures of his trophies done by Moredou Taxidermy.

    He very nicely obliged.

    Here you go.

    No idea why it is not working.
    The two pictures are in my gallery.
    There is a picture of several trophies on the wall and another of the pedestals.

    I booked my hunt with the outfitter directly with the help of a friend who had been there previously.
    Taxidermy was done in South Africa; good prices and quality (Moredou Taxidermy).

    This was all I got from him.

    Take it for what it is worth.

    I am having my work done here. They have been great in response to questions. We got an email on Friday telling us they are about done with mounts "finishing touches" and will be ready for shipment in Feb. I will keep posted and will for sure post pics when they arrive!

    Well I just got my animals back from Moredou today. I have to say I am very happy with their work. I will do a report soon with pics.
