Default N. Alabama Taxidermist ONLY a 6 month wait for mount.

Guys I wanted to let you know that I have met a young man in Hollywood Alabama (about 10 miles east of Scottsboro)that is a fine Taxidermist. I took the buck that I harvested last week and posted on here to him about 5 days ago to let him do my mount. I looked at his work very carefully and was satisified he would do a great job. He promised me that I would have my mount back ( a pedestal wall mount) in less then 60 days. The reason I will get it back so fast is becasue I paid him a 50% deposit and the Alabama rut has not startedso he is just now starting to get a few bucks in to mount. He told me that he guarentees that even when he is at his busiest he will have your mount back in less then 6 months and if your not satisfied with his work you do not owe him a nickle! He also does Waterfowel and fish and has been doing this full time for about 5 years. I will post pictures of my mount once I receive it so you can inspect his work but if you do not want to wait a year or two to get your trophy back and you want a nice job you should consider him. His name is Scott Dixon and he owns Mud Creek Taxidermy.

You guys are lucky. The average wait is a year around here.

We used to take our heads to a guy that would get them back to us in 2 -3 months. Never again. He had some process of curing the hide instead of tanning it. The mounts came back looking great, but after 2-3 years the ears had holes in them. I would rather wait a year than to end up with a mount that won't last. I would check his tanning process.

You can call him at 256-599-9722...he uses KroTan for his tanning method and according to a fellow member Bill Yox that is a method that a lot of taxies use ...
