If you enjoy fishing and hunting big game, then you might want to contact a taxidermist that mounts the types of animals you hunt and fish. When you contact the taxidermy professionals, you will need to know what questions you can ask that will help you determine which ones are right for you. Ask the taxidermists how long they have been in business. Those that have been in business for years usually have experience with stuffing and preserving wild big game animals like bears and deer, fish, and birds like ducks for commercial and residential buildings. If you want to show off your hunting and fishing skills by placing mounts above the bar in your home or restaurant, then you will need to be sure that the company you choose not only has taxidermy experts, but also well made, beautiful mounts that you can choose from. Ask the companies taxidermists if they provide installation services as well as stuffing and preserving. This will help ensure that your animals are displayed properly so that they are safe and attractive. Ask the taxidermists if they offer written quote services. After you have gathered several written quotes you can compare them to determine which ones offer the best services at the lowest prices. Be sure to ask them if the quotes include things like consultation, and delivery so that you can compare the prices accurately. You should also be sure to pay close attention to the level of courtesy that they use when they are answering your questions. This can help you determine how much they value their customers.
