Sheep taxidermist
« on: March 07, 2017, 03:06:22 PM »
Hi guys,
Curious which taxidermist in the state you'd have mount your ram?  Looking for some recommendations with pictures if possible. Who is the best?  I'm sure there are some good taxidermists around but who would get your business for that once in a lifetime ram???

Best question is why?     :chuckle:


We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

idk How his sheep come out but I would make one call to Mike at Natures Way Taxidermy and if he says he can do a good job I would take it there.

Buzzy Cook out of North Bend or Rick of Cedar River taxidermy.  They have both mounted sheep for me and they turned out great.  I'll say Rick out of Cedar River did some amazingly cool stuff to the back of my dall that is a pedestal mount.  He made it look amazing.

 "Bucklucky" at Charlie's Taxidermy does great work too.

I thought I'd add a picture of the back of the pedestal.

Love Brian's ram and appreciate Rick's work.  If I get another ram it's going to cedar river :tup:

Beautiful ram Ridgerunner!  I like the pedestal mount. Pretty cool option if you're looking for something more than the traditional shoulder mount.

Charlie's Taxidermy one of the few guys that can do it all. Some peoples elk look good, some people deer look good. All of Charlie's stuff turns out amazing.

He has my sheep right now.

Thanks for the compliments on the mount.  I wanted a pedestal mount, Rick came up with the idea for the back of sheep all in his own and did it all himself.  I was blown away when I picked it up, he turned a once in a lifetime hunt into a once in a lifetime mount too, it's very cool, never seen anything like it.

Look up Dean Haun  in Thompson Falls Montana, has a ton of awards, small operation and does a lot of high end sheep from all over north America... IMO no one compares...\I highly recommend...
