North American Life-size

Bakker Taxidermy has a real passion for Life-size mounts, they have become our specialty. Whether you'd like a mount full of motion, like a cougar jumping on a mule deer or elk, or a relaxed black bear in a Canadian woods habitat. Many times hunters give us photos of the area they hunted in to help us create a realistic habitat. Putting your special trophy in a realistic habitat will add much to the enjoyment of your mount. We like to build mounts for a certain place in your home or trophy room. This way you won't have to just find a spot somewhere.

Be sure to read our Field Prep Tips to ensure a proper mount.
