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 did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
