  • Looking for a taxidermist in VA

    Can anyone recommend a taxidermist in the Northern VA/DC/
    Maryland area that they have had a good experience with. I did a
    google search, but didn't come up with much. I am looking to get a
    shoulder mount done. I'd go as far south as Richmond. Thanks.

        Check with Chris Craft here on the VAO site or Lee's Taxidermy here outside of Warrenton, probably a Plains address.

            Laban is good. He has been at it for a long time.

                http://www.rapaleetaxidermy.com/ It aint cheap but its probably one of the best in the US. My dad has been in there several times and looked at some of his work and said it was amazing.

                  I have been using Laban's Taxidermy for over 25 years. He does outstanding work and his turn around time is second to none, 8-12 weeks on most animals depending on how busy he is. Give him a call 703-314-7228 cell 540-967-0980 home. Tell him Chris Craft gave you his numbers, he will treat you right.

                    Recommend Laban also. He has done three of my fish. 20 years later, they still look good!

                      Todd Rapalee is the best, hands down. He's mounted two deer for me and the quality is amazing. It's definitely not cheap, and depending on what you want you may want to look somewhere else, but if you get that buck of a lifetime that's where you wanna go. Also check out Dan's Taxidermy in Richmond.
