Although new to the taxidermy industry as a licensed professional, I have over 20 years of experience as a hobbyist. I received my training in fish and birds in 2015 and completed my training in whitetail deer in 2016. I continue my education through seminars and competition. Because of time restrictions and other obligations, I will only be accepting the following species: Whitetail Deer, Mule Deer, Antelope, and European Mounts.
All hides are commercially tanned. My current tannery is Old Barn Tannery. Old Barn Tannery has an average of 6 to 7 month turn around. Based on my comparison to other tanneries I am very impressed with the condition of my hides when I receive them and the almost bone-white clean appearance of the cape.
Of course, the time it takes to receive your hide from the tannery is out of my hands.
