    Taxidermists in Southland??

    Anyone know of a good taxidermist down south?

    Its only taken me 5 years to get a decent buck thats worth mounting, 9 points in total but only just out of velvet

    Hopefully the photos r going to show up...Name:  CAM01712-1.jpg

    Pretty sure a bloke in Otatara does it. The name eludes me. Someone will chime in.

    Dennis Collins, rumour has it he is super busy, only going to get busier with the roar, only other people are Steve abernethy in dunedin and Dave jocobs in Queenstown, really hoping to find someone in invers as its a pain in the a## going to Dunedin or qtown for a day trip from Stewart Island!

    Dennis is going to do it for me.

    He suggested going down the dorsal stripe from between his antlers to ribs and leaving legs as socks, but all the videos online are showing from knees up past elbows and to ribs and leaving the neck skin entire.

    Anyone got any advice on which way is better?

    It's better not to cut it, the taxidermist can cut it later if they need to. They won't be happy about the cut on the base of the neck lol.
