Justin Tinsley (Central KY Taxidermy) did my last deer & did a heckuva job. I've seen a bunch of his other work as well & only have good things to say about it.

Here's mine that he did:

Obviously everyone has their favorite...But as far as professionalism, customer service, and truly awesome work, my money goes to Clearwater Taxidermy in Louisville, KY. Jim and Barb are an awesome married couple who own and operate a very successful taxidermy shop in the Bluegrass Industrial Park in Louisville. 11606 Electron Dr, Louisville, KY 40299-3860 (502) 267-8269. Jim does everything from deer, to African elephants, other exotics, fish, etc. They are good hard-working Christian folks and they won't disappoint.

I went with Jims new life taxidermy he work looks great and apparently he trained the guys at bullseye
Jim is a good guy, don't get me wrong, and a very good taxidermist. The guy at bullseye moved up here from FL. Actually their whole family moved up from FL. They live really close to our farm and are very nice people. Something happened, won't mention it on here, and caused Jim and RB to split up.

I've used Rigdon's Taxidermy in cave city. Both mine and my buddies mount from 2011 are from there. Mine and a buddies from this year are on the list. I don't have a great up close pic of either but here is my best. Buck on the right.

He's a heck of a guy too.
