Martin Taxidermy
Barnesville, Ga

He does great work and has reasonable prices. He will work with you financially and make sure you're satisfied with your mount.
Here are some pics of my very first deer (killed it last year), and it was mounted by Martin Taxidermy. I have a 8pt I killed halloween of this year getting mounted by him. Hopefully I can bring him many more.

Glen Arp of Hoot and Hollow is in Forsyth 478 258 4612

My daughter killed her first deer on Oct. 29th and we had Glen do the mount. I picked it up on Dec. 23rd and he did a fantastic job and the price just can't be beat! ($250)

In the Covington area...

Steve Bishop Taxidermy
(770) 787-0840
Located at the corner of Hwy11 and Hwy142...The Hub

I have been using Steve going on 16 years now. I can promise you the quality you get will be 2nd to none. He specializes in whitetails...and it shows. He also does some pretty sweet skull mounts, natural or dipped.

Stop by his place one day...you should really see his work in person. He keeps tons of pictures of deer so he always knows how to make 100% sure his finished product looks natural.

It is also the PREPARATION you don't see.

Default Good taxidermy like fine art

Good and great taxidermy is like fine art. It is in the eye of the beholder! Each taxidermist has their own style and look.
Look at the eyes, ears and nose to determine quality.
My favorites : Sam Smith and Chris Fortner.
Both live the life and do great work.

Chris has done my son's buck and one bull elk for me
Sam did my axis buck which is gorgeous!

Default Edmondson's Taxidermy (Mcdonough, Locust Grove, Jackson)

This is an up and coming taxidermy stud. Jeff is really talented at what he does. His attention to detail is unmatched. Not only is he a profectionist but the turn over time is the best you'll find. I knew he was different when he told me "If it doesn't look like he's looking at you, then I haven't done my job." Give this guy a call and I promise you won't be disapointed. Shoulder Mount $325, Euro $100Camo dipped $175. Jeff Edmondson 404-368-2545
