Default Taxidermist

Can anyone recommend a taxidermist in the area. I got my best archery buck Tues and the guy I've been using is no longer doing them so I need to find someone new. Thanks for any help.

Cliffs taxidermy out of plainfield, he will have it back to you in 6 months. He did very good work on my last deer and when he says it will take x amount of months it is usually right on. I shot a 12 on Sat and he will be getting this one also.

Cliff has been getting all my work of late and not once have I been disappointed. Very good attention to detail, exceptional quality and very consistent service.

Thanks guys. Do you know what he gets for a deer head? I will have to go check him out, maybe search for a web page?

Cliff's is the way to go, I think he charges $450 for a shoulder mount. If you need his tx I've got it somewhere just let me know, I'll look for it.

Got my mount back from Cliff and he really does a good job at making the deer look life in the pose he puts them in

Cliff does some very nice deer. All I know is IF and when I ever get another trophy buck it will most likely be going to him. Unfortunately for me this trip I came back with my tag! However, I almost caught a TORNADO!!! (That Love's Park/Rockford Tornado went across I-90 not a 100 yards in front of us when we were coming back from Wisconsin today!!!! It scared the Bejesus out of me!!! Luckily, the rain was coming down SO hard that we were down to 15mph, otherwise we may have hit it head on if we were going any faster!!!)

Hunter's Den . He's located on the Il./In. border.
Talk to Dan, and tell him Mike sent you. He charges around $300.00 for a shoulder mount and does excellent work.
His number is(773)550-0575.
