I've been searching, and have found several threads about this, but nothing is really compiled in one area.

If anyone is willing to contribute, I'll keep editing this original post and we can have a list of recommended taxidermists in the state, along with links to their websites. If you have sample pictures of your own mounts, post them also and I'll put them in the links.

First question - does Denton Shearin still have a shop? I know he has a school (according to the website), but does he do his own work for the public?

Moderators - if this conflicts with anyone sponsoring the site, feel free to delete the thread.

So... everyone... what taxidermists do you recommend, and where are they located?

I highly recommend Wilkerson taxidermy for deer in Dyersburg.
I've seen better birds and ducks other places. But he is award winning on his deer mainly because they are his passion!

I have always used Bobby Humphrey. He is located on Wooddale road in Knoxville. I haven't had anything mounted in a long time, I am pretty sure he is still In business. He does pretty much everything, but done more deer than anything.
