David’s personal pledge to you:
“When a hunter entrusts us with their prized trophy they have expectations of quality. I work hard and make every effort to produce a quality piece. I have been doing taxidermy since I was ten. It is my life passion. I continue to study in the traditional methods of sculpture, state of the art taxidermy techniques and modern tanning methods. My father impressed upon me that all the small things done well are what makes every mount a piece of art.
I accept work from all over the world, catering to the quality-conscious client looking for an artistically composed, one-of- a-kind mount. I take enormous pride in creating original mounts and have every confidence that you will be impressed with the workmanship. If you find our rates to be slightly higher than our competition, I can’t apologize. Instead, I will offer you the highest quality mount you can find for your money.
Many taxidermists say they have the advantage of local species knowledge; I put that claim to practice in every aspect of the mount. At The Taxidermist Ltd your trophies are mounted on sculptured manikins exclusive to me and not available anywhere else in the world. Our mounts are renowned for impeccable detail, brilliantly executed design and quality workmanship. I look forward to working with you to create and deliver a trophy of a lifetime.”
