Thanks Charlie for the compliments and confidence in our work. If anyone has a trophy that they are considering mounting take the time to go to the shops are speak with them in person.  Thanks for the considerations in having us mount the little ones they are sometimes more difficult to get the expression and composition but we are up to the ability and the challenge.
With over a decade of experience, serving the discriminating sportsman, Nature's Way Taxidermy specializes in everything from above standard mounts to one of a kind pieces of art.

Not Tubbs.

There are three or four in the area I known of.  Pm me who if you don't mind.  I use one on a regular basis and get quality work in a reasonable time frame.

If you have one that you use and trust, keep using him. As long as this guy still has my stuff I'm not going to say who it is.

I understand....I just don't want to see another hunter have the same problems.  I have no problem endorsing my guy as he does great work.  Jeff Reeves (Tru to Life Taxidermy) in East Wenatchee north end of baker flats. 

If you get your stuff back you should give him a shout.

It's not Jeff Reeves either.

OK I finally got my bull back yesterday after 2 years and 3 months. After all that time, I had given him very specific instructions on how I wanted it done and he didn't do it the way I asked, so now it won't go on the wall it's supposed to go on.

You want to avoid this taxidermist (Wildlife Creations in Malaga, WA) at all cost as he doesn't give a crap about his business or his customers and he's a compulsive lier. Anyone who treats their customers that way shouldn't be in business and he certainly won't get any more of mine.

I'd recommend Mike White at Nature's Way.  Good guy who cares about what he is doing and it shows.in his work.  Definitely an artist and a very good one.  Good pricing, good turn around time and Great work.  I wish he'd finish up his bull and put it on here.  When I get a real monster I'll be back.

Mike

Shocking to hear this. That is not the treatment that friends and I have had with him.

Folks, this is a post from September 2013.  My guess is that he already has it figured out.   :chuckle:
