Mountain River Taxidermy

Due to high demand and a genuine workload of the whitetail deer season, we are only currently accepting new fish clients.  This is so we may continue to serve our clientele with the highest level of quality possible.  We still strongly urge our current whitetail customers to plan on a turn around time of  at least 18 months from start to finish.  We hope to re-open the doors to new whitetail customers by next season.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Thanks for looking and feel free to enjoy the rest of our site!

Hello and Welcome to Mountain River Taxidermy Studio.  We do our best to give our clients a mount they can be proud of and cherish forever.  We are located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania which is in the heart of prime hunting and fishing opportunities.  We mount almost any species of fish or game head.  We believe that every specimen is beautiful and we display them as they would be found in nature.  As always, all fish forms are custom measured and designed in-house.  We take the extra time to custom carve a fish body to match the exact measurements off of your fish.  This also allows us to recreate the correct underlying muscle detail of your fish, leaving no room for error.  We DO NOT purchase pre-made fish forms.  Our reasoning: Pre fabricated forms are measured from other fish and very often will not  fit your fish skin without costly alterations taking place.  We also mold and cast our own fish heads and fins from your fish.  This again assures proper fit and zero shrinkage later on down the road.  Mountain River Taxidermy Studio can construct habitat bases for any specimen.  This can really add a nice touch and enhance the mount.  Why not have a mount constructed exactly how the specimen looked before you harvested it?

Because we limit ourselves to skin mounted fish, reproduction fish, and game heads, Mountain River Taxidermy studio tends to have a quicker turn around time then most other taxidermy shops.  We do not overload ourselves with work, so you get your trophy back with more attention to detail given!  It’s both exciting and rewarding to see a completed mount and we want you to experience that excitement as soon as possible!

We treat every specimen as if it were our own, and mount it just as if we were entering it into a competition. You will be receiving competition quality work! We do not take short cuts in methods, or in supplies to save us money.  Our clients are special to us, and we use the best supplies and materials available to assure you a great mount that will last forever!  Mountain River Taxidermy Studio will give you a mount you will be proud to show your friends and family. Unfortunately hunting and fishing trips don‘t last forever, so let us,

"Preserve The Memory Of The Moment."
