Im just curious to see who everyone uses for their taxidermist... I hear all the time how guys are waiting for one, two or even three years to get their mounts back. I have tried out a few different ones and the guy I have now is going to keep getting all my business. He has plenty of work and he turns a mount around within 5 weeks to 2 months,(typically) even if he is super swamped. The trick to that is that he tans all of his own hides. I've refered alot of guys to him and everyone has been more than happy withthe quality of the mounts, the prices are unbeatable and his turn around time is awesome. Randy Kuntz taxidermy... And no I wasnt put up to putting this post up. I just dont understand why guys wait for 2 years or more to get their mount back that they may have been waiting their whole life to kill
I go to Nature's Own Wildlife Studio's in Lebanon. He does excellent work and you don't have to worry about what you are getting. I won't take my stuff anywhere else. There are some other good Taxidermist's out there and some of the work that I have been seeing on here proves that. I just like going there and have always had good results. You will have to wait about a year to get your stuff, but I think that is about average.
We use Shawn Lamparter's Wildlife at 2nd St & Cross St, Gouldsboro, Pa. http://www.lamparterswildlife.com
The guy will tell you upfront that he isnít the cheapest around but he does quality work and he is right. He has dons several things for me and they are perfect.
I didn't think his prices are higher then others around this area and the turn around time for deer and bear is around 9 mos.
If you want just drop off the whole animal and he will skin it and take the meat to Martinellís Deer Processing in Tannersville to do up anyway you want. I have used them and their bologna and salami and Kabila is the best I have ever had.
