Why should I choose Woods & Water for all of my trophy needs?
We've been preserving your hunting memories for over 15 years. Rowdy Woodson, owner, has hunted all over the world, giving him the opportunity to learn about each animal's habitat and anatomy. Rowdy is a member of Safari Club International, the Houston Safari Club, the Rocky Mountain Elk Hunters Foundation and an Official Measurer of SCI. He guarantees your satisfaction, providing you the most realistic trophy mount possible.
What other services do you offer besides trophy wall mounting?
Wall mounted trophies are just the beginning of our services. Our dioramas are breathtaking, and we also offer walnut plaques and name plates, not to mention coffee tables, end tables, gun racks, lamps, ashtray, pillows and more. Got an idea? Ask and we'll do our best to accommodate you. See our 'Pricing' page for additional information.
Is Woods & Water licensed?
Not only are we licensed with import and export permits, but Woods & Water Taxidermy is certified to receive all types of animals and a USDA inspected facility. This means your trophies are shipped direct to the shop, allowing you the convenience of visiting, if you wish, for review and discussion before going to the tannery.
Any tips on preparing my animals for shipping to you?
See our 'Field Preparation' page for details on preparing your large and small mammals, as well as fish and fowl.
How do I arrange shipping to you?
When you decide on Woods & Water for your taxidermy needs, give us a call or email before your hunt. We will mail you laminated cards with your name on them for all of your trophies. It's important to tag each animal's horns and skulls. This will ensure that we receive your animals. See the'Shipping' page for further instructions.
How long does it typically take to receive my finished trophies?
We feel it is important for our clients to have their animal hanging on the wall before their next year's hunt. That's why we have the fastest turn around time in the country, striving to complete your mounting in 10 to 12 months.
How do I make payment to you?
We accept personal check, cash, Discover, VISA and MasterCard. Work begins once we have received a 50% down payment with balance due upon completion. Prices on our 'Pricing' page are for standard poses; custom poses are extra. (Ask for a quote on these or any other item not on the list.) Half life-size, wall ped or 20% mounts are 70% of life-size poses. All rush orders are 30% additional. Tanning charges are additional and priced upon request. All tanning and dressing skins is at the owner's risk and must be prepaid in full.
