Joe Williams a taxidermist from Virginia harvested this 16 point stag on 9/2/05. Joe is going to do a full body mount and display this in his den/ museum. Joe saw numerous stags, hinds and lambs before he saw this one. He was very pleased .
Fast forward 7 months.
The finished mount in Joe's Den, which is nearly filled to capacity !!!
Joe was a first class client and I wish he lived closer because he does real nice work. Joe is enjoying his retirement from the phone company. He began his taxidermy while still climbing poles and repairing lines. His den is loaded with just about every North American big game species, plus exotics , birds, predictors , a weasel, mink, otter and even a large snapping turtle. He is a professional from the get go. ......Oh yea , and a nice full body white tail buck.
His desire to hunt a red stag began while he was in college. Joe even painted a red stag while in college which hangs in his den. It was surely a pleasure to have met Joe and I hope to see him again someday. He and his wife really liked Maine and vow to return !
If anyone is from the Chesapeake Virginia area and wants to see his trophy room or use his taxidermy service you can reach Joe at (757)547-4833.
Here is the rest of the Den !!!!
