What to look for in high quality taxidermy.
I've noticed people are willing to spend big bucks on hunts to tag the whitetail or muley or big game animal of a lifetime but then start penny pinching when it comes to getting it mounted. Which to me, seems crazy! After spending allll that money to go on your hunt why are you going to pick the cheapest taxidermist possible when that mount is what you will see in your home for years and years?
When it comes to taxidermy...it's one of those things that holds true to the saying "you get what you pay for." Especially as I've watched Caleb grow and improve as a waterfowl taxidermist over the past several years I've really come to appreciate the amount of time and energy that goes into quality taxidermy. Personally, when I look back on a mount 2, 5 or even 10 years later I won't necessarily remember what I paid for it but I will notice if it doesn't last or doesn't look correct. I want to admire the mount and remember the amazing hunt.
Watch my video with North Carolina's state champion taxidermist D. Price of Outback Taxidermy to see some key things to look for when picking a quality taxidermist.
Here's a look at Claw during the process of dropping him off at Outback Taxidermy and after he was brought home:
If you have a deer you'd like to get mounted or any mammal, I highly suggest D. Price of Outback Taxidermy. You can contact him HERE.

I hope this helps you this fall when getting your stud buck mounted. Wishing you all the best of luck out there this season!
