Have Procupine, need Taxidermist

Last Saturday, I harvested a porcupine with my bow, and would like to have it mounted. I am in Southern Butler County looking for a skilled taxidermist to do this for me. If anyone has some recomendations, it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Possum

Porkies are actually really easy and fun to do. Most any taxidermist good with mammals will have no problem producing a quality porcupine mount.

I love doing them. They are I think they are the easiest thing I've done since I've been in business.

It's not the size of the shop, it's the quality of the work!

Obviously I can't speak for Dave but here a mount like that would run you around $550 plus maybe another $100 for a habitat base large enough for an elk antler.
