    Default Hunter Fisher

    I have used them for a Dall sheep mount, a set of Caribou antlers, and a set of sitka blacktail deer antlers, last year and am very happy with the service and the results.

    I have a shoulder mount 'bou and a black bear rug with them right now. I haven't seen the results yet, but I had several folks recommend them to me. I'm fixing to take them another 'bou, too. The prices are pretty good, and they seem to really shoot straight with you. Good folks.

    Default Longevity

    They've been around a LONG time. You don't make it in that business for very long unless you do good work.

    They haven't done any of my big-game stuff, but I'm looking at a sockeye salmon they did for me years ago and it still looks great.

    Default Great work

    This place has done a great job for me in the past, a little timely getting things back but why rush perfection. They have done a shoulder mount moose and caribou, 1 bear rug, 1 bear 3/4 mount. Everyone of the mounts were great and they are always helpful answering any questions I had.

    They did a fish for me some years ago (early 90's).
    They were a little spendy so I expected top quality work.

    The mount now has problems. It looks like it is swelling and trying to get out of its skin.

    I'm considering taking it back for a diagnosis.

    Default Change of ownership

    Just a heads up, not a slam, and I don't want to impugn their good reputation because I've not seen their work. But my understanding is they had a change of ownership, and have run into some problems. I would ask very pointed questions about their long-term viability and the chances you will actually get your taxidermy back.

    The current owner has been there about 7 years or so.
