    Why You Should Not Be Friends With Your Taxidermist

    A professional relationship and a friendship are two separate matters, and when you cross that line, both are jeopardized. I hear constantly from people who are extremely disappointed in their taxidermist, but then they say, “But he’s a friend, and he’s a good guy.” What Does This Mean? It...

    Structural Integrity: What You Do Not See Under the Skin

    Most commercial life size mannikins come with all thread rods that extend down the legs of the mannikin and into the body. Our experience has been these metal supports are too weak and too small, and many times, they do not even extend all the way up into the body. This means life size mounts...

    My Favorite Taxidermy Project

    If you ask most artists what their favorite project is, it is usually the last one they completed. However, when I look back at over 40 years of doing taxidermy, several projects stand out, but one was a turning point and still remains a favorite — both for the subject matter (Mule Deer) and for...

    Five Considerations When You Need A Taxidermist Who Won’t Blow Your Budget

    We all want a great deal, but almost everyone recognizes “you get what you pay for.” The truth in that old adage has probably applied to all of us at one time or another, and it’s absolutely true in taxidermy. Hunting itself is expensive, and the prices can soar skyward if you want to preserve...

    Do You Need African Taxidermy For African Animals?

    On the surface, it might seem logical to use African taxidermy for animals harvested in Africa. After all, these are people who live in Africa and have direct experience with local fauna. Wouldn’t they be most qualified to determine the most natural poses and settings? You might think so, but...
