Philadelphia area Taxidermist?

Just bagged my first buck last friday and I am looking to have him mounted.
Does anyone know of a reputable shop in the Philly area?
I definately want a quality job done.

Looks like you had some success- I see another deer down behind you.

I am not sure, but for some reason, I think foxtrapper (I believe forum moderator) is from that area. However, I could be wrong. If she is within driving distance, I wouldn't hesitate to have her do it. I have looked at quite a few pictures of her work and she is very good!
