    Greetings from South Canterbury

    Good evening everyone, I'm a taxidermist assistant based in South Canterbury. Still very new to the whole hunting world but interested in learning more about it all.
    If anyone is interested in taxidermy work or just curious you are welcome come into the workshop, we're in Pleasant Point on the main road- just look for the red stag open sign out front. Was previously GD O'Rourkes and is now under new ownership.
    Nice to meet you all!

    Yes, recently painted black with our round logo decal stickers up on the building front. We don't have an official showroom at the moment, but the workshop up the back is open from Monday to Friday 10am-5pm.

    Thanks for stopping by Trout, was great for Brodie and I to meet you. Ps- Easy mistake to make but I'm just employed by Brodie and work alongside him, we're not a couple! Haha
