Leon's Taxidermy in Loudon is the best around in my opinion. Not sure if he's taking on new work right now. I spoke to him a few weeks ago and he told me that getting a hide tanned was very tough. Most of the factory's are closed right now. I'd be suspect of anyone that does take it telling you a date it can be done without letting you know the situation of the tanning. You might not see it for a year and half or longer. Good luck.

I guess “where are you located” is the obvious question...

Very happy with my 2018 buck mount from Wild Things Taxidermy in Alexandria, NH
She has a Facebook page.
The fly in the ointment is that she is trying to sell her business so not sure how much new work she is taking on.

Im sure there are some very good taxidermists down your way but one of
the best of the best is Leon's Taxidermy in Loudon NH
He isn't cheap but he is excellent . Did 7 deer mounts , a bear rug , and a coyote with a squirrel in its mouth for me.

The only other taxidermist I would recommend that does excellent work is John Foster
He did 2 deer mounts for me and both came out terrific.

I've seen bear mounts and rugs that John has done and they looked great. Just hasn't done one for me.
