Can anyone in the UK recommend a good taxidermist, we used to use Colin Dunton but we have been told that he has now retired. Thanks in advance

Take a look at Steve Newcombe in Loughborough or Paul Taylor in Dorchester. Both get good reviews on the UK site thestalkingdirectory.co.uk......which might be worth taking a look at.

Hope that helps

I would recommend GJ Knight, Essex direction, he recently did a muntjac back for me, very happy with the outcome.

Do you live in UK or US?Or?
I'm UK based. Not really after taxidermy for UK animals as I take so many and have a very large collection of heads so wouldn't be able to pick one over another to mount! Its more for African and other mounts.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
