Taxidermist with beetles in Rochester NY area??

Recommended Posts

I have the bear head and the buck I got on Saturday. They are in the chest freezer and I am thinking I better get them out and processed before the Mrs. opens a bag...lol. Anyone know a Taxidermist in the Rochester area that has beetles? I don't like the boiled becasue of the loosening of the teeth and loss of the nasal bones. I had a bear done previously and it looks great but it wasn't local. I would like to get this to them asap before i leave for camp on Friday morning.

I agree beetles work best. I know 2 people who do them but nowhere close to Rochester. Good luck!

No, just his pictures seem meh to me. I prefer Kurt Fox at foxstudiostaxidermy.com I've seen literally hundreds of his mounts and all are most excellent including 10 of mine he did for me maybe more. I lost count

I dont remember if Brian Pragle does beetles or not. He did a euro for me a few years back and it turned out nice. Give Mike a shout, he would probably know.

Oh I agree his skulls look good aside from the painted ones. But still far better than any artistic paint I could do.

Hes looking to get a skull done. Beetles are the way to go IMO, no shrinkage

Yup. I made a mistake of boiling a bobcat skull once. Cost me precious eighths of inches, which put me 10th all time for biggest skull instead of like 6th or 7th.

Not gonna lie. The more I look at those "trophy records" the more I start to think these things are ridiculous and just scams to grab more money from people that want to either be listed or view any of the so called records. Last I checked records are supposed to be viewable for free. Not charge money to see what it is. What a scam

Also, according to google there are several Volkswagen Beetles for sale in the Batavia area

good find. they're best served with a couple uncleaned skulls left inside on the front seat with all the windows rolled. let it set a while so nobody else needs to drive them.
