Must provide hunting license and tag number at drop off.
For taxidermy, we require a 50% deposit upon drop-off and the other 50% at the time of pickup. We accept credit cards and cash.
Finished mounts will be held for a maximum of 90days, unless otherwise agreed. After that, the mount will be forfeited and will become property of Harpley's Taxidermy.
"It's ready for me to pickup already? That was fast." - J.W.
"I am going to bring every deer in my freezer to you." - Scott H.
"I called you as soon as I got my first Ohio buck. It's the biggest deer of my life and I 100% trust it in your hands." - Ben S.
Unlike Thanksgiving, turkeys and dressing do not mix in taxidermy. Do NOT field dress your turkey. Please wrap the head with a paper towel, place a ziploc bag over the head and tape ziploc closed around the neck. This keeps the body feathers clean.
*Please don't step on the turkey's head or neck - this causes damage.*
If possible, bring the bird to our studio the day of harvest or very gently place it in a plastic bag, being careful not to damage feathers. If you are able to get the bird to us within a few days, then place on top of ice in a cooler ensuring the water cannot get in the bag, otherwise freeze the entire bird. Ensure that the head was previously bagged as described in the previous question.
Make cuts on the hide at the dotted line locations.
Please make sure you pay attention to how the hide moves around when skinning, especially if you do not have a sharp knife. Remember, we can always trim away any excess, but we cannot add more!
First, place your order with us via phone or email. We will then email you an order form that MUST be included with your shipment. Then, select your carrier and ship to our studio - next day or guaranteed 2 day. We also encourage you to get the proper insurance on your shipment in case there are any issues. We are not liable for any item prior to its arrival to our studio.
We can definitely ship your mount for your convenience. Please coordinate with us if you will need your mount shipped. All shipping and insurance coverage costs will be additional to the cost of your mount and will need to be paid prior to shipping. Shipping costs can vary depending on size and weight of mounts.
During deer season (Sept 11-Jan 1) we offer deer meat processing and are open from 9am-9pm.
Outside of deer season, visits to our studio for taxidermy drop-offs and pick-ups need to be arranged. We want to ensure we are there and ready for you when you arrive. Please call or email to schedule a time.
