I finally got the chance to get a wallhanger during 2nd season; 10 pointer with a very nice symetrical rack. I am looking for some advice on where anyone else has had work done by any local taxidermists and who they would recommend. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks much,

Louie L.

I agree. Joe does do excellent work. I was just there over the weekend dropping off a head and wouldnt take mine anywhere else.

George Swiderski of Old World Taxidermy. He is in Palatine. The most beautiful work I have ever seen. I just marvel at his studio. He is pricey though, but you get what you pay for.
Or Big Mikes Taxidermy in Woodstock. He has a shop closer to Chicago too, but not really sure where.
Congrats on the bute!

Dale Schwab in Algonquin, the best work I have seen yet, he has done four deer, two pronghorns, and one elk for me!
