Hi, my name is Mike Herman. I have been practicing the art of taxidermy since 2001. I've always enjoyed sketching, painting, charcoal and chalk wildlife art. I am passionate about hunting and fishing, and just being outdoors. I am married to my wife of 20yrs, Melissa, and we have 2 kids. My goal is to provide quality mounts at an affordable price, with resonable turn-around.
I use the highest quality materials available in the taxidermy industry. I am constantly doing research, buying training videos, attending seminars, staying up to date on the latest techniques and new materials and forms. I try very hard to get it right, studying reference photos, animal anatomy, posture and expressions.
I send my capes to a professional tannery. They are tanned and thinned to perfection by people that do it for a living, providing me with a fantastic finished product.
My turn around time is 8-12 months. This is not a rush process. Specialty items can take longer.

HAVE A SUCCESSFUL AND SAFE SEASON. HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!
