Dawn 'til Dusk Taxidermy

Award-Winning Taxidermy for the discriminating sportsman.


Shoulder Mounts are available for any type of animal. In choosing what type of mount to go with, one must consider where it will be displayed and what will compliment that particular animal the most. The first decision is what profile it will have. The profile describes the position of the animal's head in relation to its shoulder. This ranges from full upright to full sneak and several positions in between. The next decision is what turn to give it. Turn is assigned from the animal's perspective. Turns range from straight to extreme right and left and several positions in between. The third decision is what attitude or expression the animal will have. Examples are calm, alert, aggressive or inquisitive. Special consideration must be given to the large-antlered game as far as wall clearance, and fitting them through your door. Of course you can also save yourself the decision-making and just leave it up to me!!


Life-size mounts can be done for any type or size of animal and often two or more animals together. The design and composition possibilities are limitless. Some important considerations are where it is to be located and what space is available. The idea of a life-size mount can also be deceiving. For example, a life-size cougar actually takes up less space than a cougar rug.


Rugs can be made with the jaws open or closed. You have a choice of two felt colors to trim the outside. As well, the rug is fully padded and lined with a color-co-coordinated lining and the whole rug is fully sewn, not glued.


Birds can be mounted either standing, or in flight. In either position, the mount is designed to either hang on the wall or be free standing for positioning on a shelf or coffee table
