Lombardi in Tarentum does descent work and is reasonable. His number is not listed, but if you want it PM me. I guess he has enough of a client list he doesn't want/need to advertise.

There have been 2 other guys on here from the B.V. area who were looking for a taxidermist. I recommended Dave Dillon of AcmeTaxidermy.com to both of them and they are both well pleased with the results. His prices are competitive (under priced IMO), his work is first class, and his turn around time is as good as you will find.

He has several topics in this forum where he shows his work off and his screen name is DAVE DILLON. I believe this link will do the talking for Dave http://www.huntingpa.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1235037&fpart=1

I am assuming you are looking for a taxidermist for the same reasons I was several years ago. Dave represents what you would expect from a professional taxidermist and someone who appreciates his customers.

His number is 724-640-5538

I don't know how far you are willing to drive but Second Nature Taxadermy is about two hours away if you want top quailty work. Joe is the best I've seen yet. He does most of the work for Majestic World Lodge in Portage, PA.

Acme Taxidermy.
Dave Dillon's work is top notch, great guy to deal with, and turn around time is great. I don't mind the hour drive at all, nice to get outta the city anyways.

I will also recommend Dave Dillon. I have seen several of his mounts over the last few years and they are all top notch.

Yep, I had a couple of mounts done from Allen's Taxidermy in Uniontown. This was 6-7 years ago. 1 Grouse, 1 Deer. Both turned out just excellent.

There is also Tim's Taxidermy across the river from you. On top of the river hill above Elco, on Rt. 88. Not sure of his work though.

I also had a buck and a gobbler done about 5 years ago by Allens taxidermy they both turned out very good I really liked the work that he did. I recommended Allen's and it isnt that far from you.

Looks like you have pleanty of suggestions. I like Joel Zimmerman of Northwood School of Taxidermy in Friedens. It is 10 minutes from Somerset exit on TPK.
