taxidermist?

Post by tailwaters »

My buddy shot a deer Sunday that we have been hunting most of the season. He's looking for a good taxidermist that can do the front shoulders, neck and head. It's not official yet but a good chance it will be the new state record at 168.5 BC so they need to be good. Any recommendations?

I know of several people that swear by Harden's in Thomasville. His work is good, and it takes about a year to get your head back.

Also, post a pic so we can see the deer.

Harden's does do a good job but think the wait is 2 years or a least that what it was the last time we used them. I can't post pic's but will send it to someone that can.

Small shop and always a bit of wait time, but Mike Reinhart of R&R Taxidermy (Farms Road on east side of Tallahassee near Lloyd) does some darn good work.

He did this buck for me a few years back.
