Some of the best replica mounts that I've ever seen were from Lake Fork Taxidermy.

My dad mounted this over 50 years ago and Ron cleaned it and redone it. Just my 2Ā¢ . Lake Fork Taxidermy does good work as well.

Got the same 2 answers when asking online and dug a little deeper and heard stuff that scared me off from both, I'd go elsewhere.

Bevs Fish creations just east of Emory. I have had her do several. I have been happy with them all. Though I Do change the stump the fish are mounted on. I find my own and then do it like I want.

Choose wisely based on the quality you want. I always say "you have to live with it , it better be good"
