European Mounts

Everyone will tell you how to do it and that it’s easier to do it yourself! That may be true, but here, your skulls go through a detailed four step process. Here’s what happens…

1. Skull is frozen or trimmed immediately to remove the majority of the meat

2. Skulls take a “beetle bath” in one of our tanks where 100k bugs go to work!

3. After being meticulously eaten down to the finest detail they are then run through a quite potent ammonia degreasing process. 

4. Lastly, and really what you ultimately see, they are run through our whitening process to give them the brightest white possible 

To be clear…We do NOT offer the fastest euro mount available, but we stand by quality and detail being just about perfect work.

Shoulder Mounts

When you drop off your animal we’ll discuss many details I need to preserve the memory of that moment of that great day. The more pictures you took the better! We’ll discuss everything from directional positioning in rooms, eyes, ears and you’ll pick what form suits your fancy. 

Then its fleshed, salted to preserve the fur in place and sent to our tannery. Upon return we measure it for exactness, get your form and get to work! If you’re not satisfied for any reason, we’ll fix it. 

Cleaning and Repair Services

Did you know you should regularly be cleaning and dusting your finished mounts to prolong their life? They also need to avoid direct sun at all costs. 

 Unfortunately they also take falls and some get nibbled on by mice. Have you ever picked up your buck from the taxidermist and it doesn’t even look like your buck? 

We offer both cleaning and repair services. If it’s broken or just “bad,” we can probably fix it.

Call us to discuss our very reasonable fee to clean, recolor or even redo your trophies to give them the best possible look they deserve!

Us In Action

This really is art to us.  

The entire process from drop off being exhausted from the hunt until the pickup candidly has MANY shortcuts. We don’t believe in them. To give these animals the respect and beauty they deserve is meticulous. No detail is too small. Come into the shop to see some of our handiwork. Give us a call to schedule a visit. 

To me this work is therapeutic and helps with my OCD on tiny detail work. We don’t do this for the money, that’s for sure! We do it because we love to.
