Does anyone know of a good taxidermist that's within a 3 hour drive from Casper? I am looking for a good big game taxidermist, and also for a good fish taxidermist. If you could post pictures that would be great.

Black Hills Taxidermy in Shell is over 3 hours away from Casper but I have heard good things about that taxidermist. Also, Nature's Design in Cody is more like 4+ hours away but they are supposed to be great.

Big Bear taxidermy in Ranchester, wy which is just north of sheridan does outstanding work. They do everything from big game to fish to birds. I just took a duck there last year and my cousin has been doing business with them for years now. His bear mount will scare the crap out of you it looks so real when your not expectiing it to be around the corner. They have a website and you can get their info there.

I've driven by Big Bear time and time again but have never went in. Just checked out the website, and I'm impressed! Not only do the mounts look really good, his pricing is very nice too.

The prices at big bear are great for the extremely great quality. I was in about a month ago and he had a nice Canadian moose and some huge elk in there. There are also some big mulies in there. It would be worth the time just to go in and check them out.

Trails West in Rawlins does good work. He does some of the best antelope mounts I've ever seen. He also did a mountain lion for me that looks great... very reasonable prices.

Lynn Stewart in Dubois does great work. He is contracted by Cabelas to do their mounts. He produces world class heads!
