George and Dianne recently stopped by Shep Brown's shop to check in on the progress of one of their buck mounts. Following are a few outtakes from their interview with Shep in his shop:
* Shep is an award-winning taxidermy expert with 44 years of knowledge and experience
* Shep works on all kinds of species from deer, turkey, bear, bobcats, reptiles of all kinds, reproductive fish, exotic animals from around the world and just about every kind of game legal to hunt
* Strangest mount he ever did was a Saint Bernard - there's a story behind it
* George and Dianne found Shep in the middle of working on a Medusa that will have reptiles all over and around her head
* The differences between Africa game and North America game is that the Africa game hides arrive to the shop very stiff as a result of the way they are packed for international shipping
* Biggest Iowa buck Shep ever mounted scored a whopping 220+/-
* The Covid affect on Shep's taxidermy business greatly increased due to an increase in hunters' time and access availability
* Shep shared two key tips to hunters on deer preparation for taxidermy shops
* No task is too great. Shep fixes broken buck tines with such speciality that his repairs cannot be detected with the naked eye
* Shep is known for reptiles (snakes and alligators), and in fact, won Best in the World with a reproduction alligator head
* Advice for upcoming taxidermists - how to get started in the field
