About Us

Located in the Shenandoah Valley, Daryl Howdyshell, owner and award winning taxidermist,  has studied the art of taxidermy for over 30 years. With his meticulous attention to detail, he takes great pride in his work and believes in producing the most realistic portrayal of your trophies to be enjoyed for years to come!

Turn around time is generally six to ten months! Which means you will be showing off that trophy to family and friends in no time!
