I was fortunate enough to harvest one with a bow and would like a full body mount. Who's the best? Thanks!

The best will be someone that does a lot of them. Otherwise you are going to get a javelina that looks like a rocket ship

Thats what I figure. I live in the midwest and there ain't too many of them around so I was hoping someone had a recommendation on where to send it.

Ask on the AZ state forum. Someone may be able to help.

I would add to Charlie's forums suggestion - New Mexico and Texas

Wellers Wildlife Studio in Tucson did mine. They live in the heart of Javelina country and did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend them for any taxidermy work, but especially javelina. I love my life-size javo mount!!

Wellers did mine also, great job, I especially liked the coffee and cigarette smoke stained teeth.

Schnettgoeke taxidermy Grafton Illinois on the Mississippi north of St. Louis is a nationally award winning taxi who did my full body javi. If i get out to my cabin I will post a pic. This is a full body lion he did.

Great looking Lion mount

If you have a taxidermist that can do cats and they look awesome you have a taxidermist who can mount anything. I should be getting my javie back shortly and will post a pic once I do. My taxi is a national champion so I'm not concerned whether it will look good or not!

Track down Jimmy Biela of Bielas Taxidermy, Floresville TX. He's probably one of the best wildlife artists you'll meet.

He's done 2 javelina mounts (lifesize and shoulder) and they look awesome.

Bud Weller did my Javi and Coues deer and both are exceptional.

Shipping was painful I wish I had made a hunting trip through Tucson to pick them up

Dennis Razza X2. He’s never done anything for me but I’ve seen enough of his work on here.

The thing about Javelina mounts is that they usually aren't as impressive as the animal is. I shot a couple that were over 50#, and the only forms available made the javelina looks smaller than they were. Maybe things have changed, but I doubt it. This 50# javelina looked more stout in the flesh.

Whoever does your javelina, don't get talked into an open-mouth mount. You'll have your mount a long time and many customers get tired of living with a snarling, really unrealistic mount. But experienced taxidermists know that a living javelina with its mouth closed naturally can show about 1/4 inch of the upper canine teeth protruding down. They insert fake canines in the closed-mouth form.

May be some merit to that, but they sure show their canines when threatened or when trying to break your arrow if it didn’t pass through. Lol

Mine charged me popping his jaws and snorting all the way to 5 steps after I shot him. A second arrow was required at that distance. Open mouth is for sure how I will mount mine because of this encounter.

I shot one in old Mexico that was 4' square if he was a inch. Huge! Had to be over 100#
