Anyone have experience with this shop out of Ludlow? I got a few skulls cleaned by his beetles and he was a nice guy. he had lots of good looking work in his shop, but they were more like special projects and display pieces rather than average mounts. Before I pull the trigger I'd love to see if anyone else can vouch for him.

Ive gone to Bob Watkins before and liked the quality of the mount but the eyes didn't come out right, they were kind of looking in different directions. I hear lots of other people like his work, maybe it was just a fluke. Thanks in advance, I'm in northern Worcester county if anyone else has other ideas.

I honestly have never seen a mount I liked that was done around here. My friend from Ny does them, and I would never let anyone else touch one of mine. He's coming down in a week or 2 to pick up a bunch of stuff.

Not sure of his name but a guy in Monson does good work from what I hear.

Wachusett, I hae used Vinny Kersey for a BEAVER and life size Bear mount, and can confidently say he did an outstanding job on both mounts, the facial creases and forehead frowns were remarkable on the Bear along with an extremely exceptional fur. the Beaver pelt ,also a life size mount is practically alive ,,,you will be happy with his work,be specific in what you want he will create it..

Thanks for the input fellas. Z7X, that's interesting and too bad you had the same experience. I had a friend look at the eyes to try to reset them but he said the way it was done its almost impossible to fix. He recommended painting the eyes instead which I may try.
