Razza's Taxidermy Thanks bowsite!
I want to thank all the bowsiters that sent me work over the last few years. It is greatly appreciated.
Here is a picture of some jobs I completed this month for bowsiters.
Thank You for the business!
Razza's Taxidermy Studio Bowsite Sponsor
I'll 2nd that "WOW"! Impressive!
Or there:) thank you to all of you at Razzas Taxidermy!
We should be thanking you as well! Thanks for the great mount threads as well as being a sponsor!
yeah--please keep those taxi threads rolling!
Sending the wolves and lynx from the Babine trap line trip to Dennis was a good decision for me.
He did a fantastic job and the mount thread was fun to view along the way.
Thanks for a job well done!
awesome stuff, you are a gifted man
and what a great way to earn a living!
Thanks for your step by step projects you've put on here and all the great pics of your work
Thanks Dale for posting the pics. When Bill stops over we should get together and shoot a few arrows!
Incredible work Dennis! Congrats at being at the top of your game!
That is a cool photo, Dennis. Again, great job on my goat. Can't wait to get him.
Thank you Dennis , as always, amazing work. Looking forward to bringing you that goat!
Great work Dennis!! Beautiful mounts....
You are an ARTIST! Thanks for posting pictures-all of you. It helps an old bowhunter dream!
Unbelievable work and craftsman ship.
Good luck, Robb
Some impressive trophies, and impressive work. I can see why they chose you to do the mounts.
Dennis - that is truly artistic.
Question for you - I presume that you can do whitetails now in your sleep because of the area you are in. When you get an African lion or some other species that you will do very few of in your lifetime, are they a lot harder (maybe 'harder' isn't the right word - do you spend more time on these)? Do you have to study pictures on the internet to get the coloring/posture right? Do you enjoy working something new like that?
Anyway, it looks like fun from the outside looking in - I hope that you are able to make a decent living and keep up with the demand.
Thanks for the comments.
Charlie- I was looking for that piture with no luck. Thanks you.
Amoebus- Whitetails are a huge passion of mine. I love to hunt them and work on them. Just like anything I had to mount my first one at some pt. When I work on an animal I never mounted I do an in-depth-study on it. I research everything from muscle and bone structure to eyelash angle and glands. I get all the refrence pics I can and study. You need to know what is going on under the skin to make them look real and lifelike. With that said... everything mounts in the same process. You just need to know the anatomy of that animal.
Amazing work, Dennis, and thank you for all the "mount-along" threads. Really enjoy those.
Beautiful work Dennis! You are a true artist! Thank you for sharing!
Question Dennis: Are you a 1-man shop, or do you have help for hide prep, etc?
Because if your first photo is only SOME of what you turned out this month I'd be speechless if you are able to do it alone.
I too appreciate your taxidermy threads & photos. Helps to see just how much goes into a quality mount below the surface.
The fact that you took the time to come on here to thank and highlight the Bowsiters animals says a lot about your character too! Nice work!
I'll be heading out to the studio to pick up my ram this weekend. Can't wait Looks great!
Bringing it back to the Campout are ya?:)
Dennis your work speaks for itself, the mule deer you did for me is artwork! I look forward to bringing you something more in the not so distant future (if I am lucky enough to be successful)
I won't tell everyone about when I picked it up, but you definitely went over and above to work my crazy schedule at that time into your plans (I don't think there is anyone else out there who would be as accommodating as you were) and I don't know if you remember it.......
Wow. You simply are THE MAN!! Thanks for working with me!!
Very Impressive work. That cat is stunning! You are very talented.
Amazing, amazing work. I'm currently learning (hobby) taxidermy by being an apprentice at a taxidermy shop. I've never appreciated quality taxidermy work as I do now. Dennis is a very talented artist. Thanks for sharing. Ef
One more thing... if you look at how clean his shop is, you'll understand that his attention to detail is off the chart for a taxidermist. This quality separates the men from the boys. Ed F
Mr. Razza I just wanted to say that God has blessed you with an amazing talent!These mounts are off the charts!Amazing work! Have a great day. Deanman
Dennis the cat is breathtaking. What the hayl else can I say?:)
Awesome work! What is involved with shipping to you?
Simply the best out there, hands down.
Beautiful stuff Dennis. Love Ned's sheep.
Thank you Dennis, you're awesome!
Awesome mounts...the goat facing down looks awesome...Sept 2017 can't come soon enough for that hunt!!
CRAZY good stuff, very nice.
Full mount bighorn is awesome
Thanks for the comments!
Spike78, Shipping is safe and easy. Most of my work is shipped in from other states. You can either ship direct from an outfitter or from your house. Ship frozen or turned and salted. If you ship frozen contact me before you ship for detailed directions and I will want to know when it ships so I can track it. Put all your info...tag number, name and address inside the box. For anyone planning on shipping I recommend calling the studio before the hunt for details and shipping lables. Thanks.
I forgot to add the finished picture of Ned's ram. When I originally posted I was waiting for the base to arrive. Here is the updated pic. I think the walnut adds a lot to the mount!
Simply great work. The close up of the cougars face is amazing as is all of your work.
That is awesome work Dennis! Thanks for posting.
Outstanding in all regards! Thanks for sharing.
You're an amazingly talented guy
If I did not live within and hour of Greg Brumfield, I would go through the trouble of shipping and sending/picking up my stuff to you.
Amazing work Dennis!
i'm pretty sure that cat is alive;)
Looks great! Thanks for posting.
Great work Dennis see you in a couple of weeks with a bear!
Just another mount.....:) Excellent work!
Good taxidermy is almost as much fun as hunting ! Good work !

Going back thru the different pics, I'm with IdyllwildArcher....the cat is just outstanding!!
link to Marks Sheep mount thread.
You are amazing Dennis...that Cougar is insanely good !
56 years of bowhunting, your work sure gets my juices flowing. Prayers sent for continued success and good health!
Dennis outstanding work thank you!
This bear had a lot of scars. Really neat bear! Here's a few extra pics.
Absolutely Stunning work.
Wow that bear is awesome, great character!
Dennis, you are one talented dude! Really impressive work!!!
I've done taxidermy for a lot of year's . You sir have some of the best mount's I have ever seen . Great work .
Wish you were 2000 miles farther West. You do AWESOME work. I really like your wolves.
I'm suspicious; that shop is way too clean. I'm thinking that the whole thing is a front and he rented live animals from the zoo for all those pics!
Seriously Dennis, truly outstanding work!
Dennis thats a great bear with all those scars!- from Pa? Did he have an ear tag? Or more damage from a fight?
ahhh man... im so jealous... lol
Nice Dennis, and congrats Fred. I think we need to see Fred's man cave now :) I don't think I can fit a full size elk in my house let alone a room.
Crazy good artistry Dennis!!! Congrats on being at the top of your game!!
Amazing work Dennis, so what you gonna charge me for a cougar mount (4 legged)? I sure would like to shoot one soon. Mike
Ben, The elk bug gets us all! Did you draw your WY elk this year? I'm embarrassed to admit, I might catch pat... I'm at 8 elk hunts and no elk yet!
Mike, Thanks for clarifying 4 legged! LOL . I'll shoot you pricing.
i actually didnt put in for a license, just collecting points. i now have no game plan in sight for wyo.
i was going to go solo in CO this yr but pussied out..
im looking for a partner yet and may still find one, who knows..
good luck with iowa this yr man!!! keep me posted!!
Outstanding work by a great guy!
As Mad Trapper said outstanding!
Wow, that looks amazing. GJ Dennis.
Dennis, As always, incredible work. I sent you a PM.
Those mounts are incredible!! Is there a way of keeping the vegetation and ground cover looking new? I have seen mounts a few years old where the bases get faded/off color
