Is our service right for you?
We are looking for the professional, entrepreneur, or taxidermy mount owner that enjoys their trophy room and all the fond memories of the many hunts. One that knows the importance of regular routine maintenance and does not want bugs chewing on their dusty trophy taxidermy mounts. They also know that they can keep their spouse happy by having the cleanest trophies, and the best looking trophies among their friends. I am sure this is you and you made the right choice inviting us to preserve your trophies. Our services are not for you if you are pinching pennies. You do not care what your trophies look like. Your trophy room consists of a couple of heads and you can’t or don’t want to see how bad they look. You couldn’t care less about your trophies and you have cheap friends. If this is you, please cancel our visit to your trophies.
Taxidermy mounts and bugs.
Do your taxidermy mounts have bugs? We have an answer for you. If your taxidermy mounts do have bugs, and you are seeing some signs of damage, here is your answer. First, the problem that you have is caused by insects that destroy the hide, hair, and horns on taxidermy mounts and tanned skins. This problem cannot be ignored or you could lose these pieces completely. Symptoms to this problem will be hair loss, sawdust-like dirt around the horns, hoofs, feet, and on the floor or furniture under your taxidermy mounts. You may even find what looks like little rice crispies on your trophy mounts. These are the shells of the bugs as they are shed for the bug to grow. The reason that the bugs are now more of an issue is that tanneries are no longer using arsenic, or anything else with residual protection. Now your mounts have no protection against these hungry and destructive insects. Your taxidermist has no control over them, nor do exterminating companies know what to do with taxidermy mounts and bugs. Every year thousands of trophy mounts are needlessly destroyed by bugs. Our process of taking care of your mounts will stop this damage. Don't let your mount fall apart before having us preserve your trophies!
You could be killing your trophy again! Without proper care you can be causing the demise of your mount quicker than you think. By neglect or maybe with too much attention your mount's life could be getting shorter, not longer. Learn the 6 ways you could be harming your mounts in our consultation after your preservation.

We offer to clean your trophies in your trophy room. We clean the mount with our special formula and condition the horns or antlers. The formula cleans, bug-proofs, and conditions the hair, and the conditioner brings the color back into the horns or antlers and makes the mount look fresh and more alive. We detail the mount by fixing any cracks or damage it might have sustained and restore it to its maximum potential. What some of our customers are saying about Trophy DOC:
“While a taxidermist can preserve the memory of a hunt for a few years, Forrest and Trophy Doc will preserve the memory for a lifetime. I trust Trophy Doc and only Trophy Doc for all of my taxidermy preservation needs. You should too.”
“Forrest is professional, quick and efficient.”
Because of the professional way you have treated our modest collection of shoulder mounts, you are our “Go to Guy’'” for their long term care.
This is a note to thank you for the excellent work you did for us on our trophy room this past summer. Your prompt and timely service was appreciated and our Safari Room has never looked better than when you completed the cleaning and treatment of our trophies. I would highly recommend the work and service provided by The Trophy DOC. The pricing was fair, reasonable, and very competitive with other providers. Thanks again.
"Forrest Ketner ...his work ethic and performance were exemplary. His knowledge as a taxidermist is unsurpassed. He touched up some areas on my older trophies, repaired a damaged one, and advised me greatly in trophy room layout (which is an art in itself) ....."
