Professional Taxidermy Service
Who we are – We are a family business started in 2014 in Jacksonville, NC. Kendall is the full time professionally trained taxidermist and Daniel is an active duty Marine and the help around the shop.
Why we do what we do – We are both avid outdoors people with a deep-rooted love of nature and the animals around us. We love to hunt and harvest these animals both for the thrill of the adventure and for the meat that they provide. The act of preserving a trophy taken on a hunt, whether for ourselves or customers, provides a great deal of satisfaction to us. Replicating the natural beauty of a deer, bear, bobcat, or countless other creatures is our passion and calling.
Our promise to you – We love creating these pieces of art and promise that every ounce of artistic ability and experience goes into each mount that leaves our shop. We strive to make this the most customer-friendly experience you have ever had. We believe that communication is key and endeavor to make sure our customers are informed of the progress of their pieces.
