Hugh Bryant at Antler Creations in Lavonia did a great job. I hope I'll have some more bucks in the future to send his way.

I wanna second Jeff Edmondson of Edmondsons Taxidermy in Ola. He has a small shop but does impressive work. I saw some of his mounts this week after I dropped off a turkey and I will be taking my next deer to him. He's about to get ready for the world championships and I saw one of his whitetail mounts and all I can say is whoa!

Jordan's Taxidermy in Winston, Ga.
7627 Highway 78
Winston, Ga. 30187
678-715-6363

Wayman Jordan does a fine job. Been in business for many years and is well known around the Douglas/Cobb Co. area. They take their time but not too long. Usually they will have your mount back to you in 6 months or less. They have a full blown studio and always plenty of mounts to see. I suppose deer heads are their specialty but they do a great job on fish, birds, coyotes, etc. I have never seen a bad mount by this guy. He has mounted two deer for me and several for my family and friends. $350 shoulder mount is their standard rate, I do believe. Well worth it. If I can figure out how to insert pics...Maybe this will work.

8 point semi sneak


10 point full sneak

Steve Johnson in Phenix City, Alabama "Realistic mounts for realistic prices"
334-614-3058, or 334-448-0977

Steve does a pretty good job as well. He picks up at various deer processors and I let him mount an 8 point for me this year. He charges $275 for a shoulder mount and I know, I know...Sounds like a cheap job but he does a good job for the money. He has mounted some deer for a couple of my friends so I had a pretty good idea what to expect. You can still find a good deal sometimes. Steve takes his time and doesn't take on more than he can handle. Very nice guy as well. Here's the deer he mounted for me. Not bad for $275...At least I like it. (I have since knocked the cobwebs from the ceiling)

Last week I attended the World Taxidermy Championships held in Springfield, Il. It was a true world event and was represented by taxidermists from the Continental United States as well as Alaska and Hawaii. There were also taxidermists competing from 20 foreign countries including Great Britain, China, Russia, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and many others. Two taxidermists from Georgia won some of the top honors. Stevie Young of Valdosta, Georgia won First place in the masters division and was awarded the "Best in World" title and Gold medal for a strutting Eastern wild turkey. "Frog" Mullis of Hawkinsville, Georgia won a first place in the masters division and was ranked "Second best in World" and a silver medal in the gamehead division for a boar mount. Their clients should be very proud to have world renowned taxidermists right here in their home state. Congratulations Stevie & Frog!

I totally agree Rick, us old schoolers have seen alot of this young talent develop over the years after we have been there and done that. Congrats to the fine talented wildlife artists in this State, yourself included.

I have 2 that I would refer to anyone without regret and without worry that it would blow back on me. Both do an absolutely wonderful job with reasonable prices and high quality work.




1. Woodys in Bladwin. Since Woody passed a few years back Greg has been running the shop and is still turning out a large number of very high quality mounts. Greg was doing the majority of the deer even when Woody was still alive and the quality is still there! They specialize in deer and fish. You cannot go wrong. I miss that bi annual trip north for sure!


Here is a couple of examples of work they did for us and some fish











2. Fortner Taxidermy. Chris does an outstanding job and is has a great following here on the forums and outside the forums. He def cares about his work and follows thru on what he says. He does a little bit of everything. I have never had the opportunity to meet him because I started using him after moving up here but he has done a few mounts for us and has been nothing short of expectations. Prices are great and customer service is even better. Here is a few he has done for us as well.

Smith's Taxidermy in Waycross. He is off of Swamp Road on Howard Lane. (912)-548-3159.
Jody does excellent work, he specializes in deer. He has done a few bears and a cat or two. Does not do birds or fish (other than fan mounts for turkeys). His price for deer is 300 or 275 without plaque. Really fast turn around for European mounts.

Great folks. Take all of our deer processed and mounted there. They are really friendly, professional, and do awesome work.

They have lots of mounts in a room for you to look at and will help you decide what you want done.

I have had shoulder mounts done there and tanned hides.

Don't hesitate to go see them.

I drive my deer from Worth Co all the way to Dawson (hour and half drive roughly) if that tells you anything!


Bob retired after this past season.
