North American Big Game Taxidermist & Taxidermy Expertise
Elk Shoulder Mounts
White Tail Deer
North American Big Game
Kaleb Moore has experience mounting the following North American large game animals: antelope, black bear, brown bear, grizzly bear, boar, buffalo (bison), caribou, coyote, whitetail deer, mule deer, elk, mountain goat, mountain lion, moose, bighorn sheep, dall sheep, stone sheep, wolverine and wolves.
Big game trophies are the final result of the hunter’s dreams. Recreating the visual appearance of the animal in the moment before the trigger was pulled or arrow was released is key to the hunter's ability to relive the moment and their dream.
Big Game Philosophy
We offer full shoulder mounts and life-size mounts for any of the big game animals listed above.
You can expect Kaleb to complete all large game taxidermy projects in less than eight months, with most being done in less than six months.
Proper Trophy Care
Great end results begin with proper care in the field. Kaleb suggests that the hunter wipe off excess blood, when possible and cool down that trophy as soon as possible. The animal does not need to be caped, and Kaleb recommends that the hunter does not attempt caping unless he is extremely experienced with the process. Heavy salting of the hide is only necessary when it may be a few days before the trophy can be properly cooled down or frozen.
Habitat bases, driftwood and name plates are an additional charge that we can discuss. Prices for half "life size" are 70 percent of of the costs shown for full life size.
Shoulder Mounts (plaques or name plates available):
One-third down payment is required to begin all taxidermy projects. Upon completion, the remaining balance is due. 100 percent down payment is required for all hide tanning and rugs. Your trophy must be picked up and paid for within 30 days of notice. If requested, we are happy to arrange for shipping for an additional charge. Trophies not picked up (or shipped) and paid for in 30 days will be charged a storage fee of $30 per month. Trophies not picked up (or shipped) and paid for in 60 days will be considered abandoned and will be sold for the balance due.
