NAW's Best of the Worst Whitetail Taxidermy

Taxidermy is the art of preparing, stuffing and mounting the skin of an animal, according to Mr. Webster. Unfortunately, not all taxidermy is created equal.

For many hunters, the trophy they drop off at the taxidermist isn't the same one they get back. It seems that a few wildlife artists have taken some liberties with their work over the years, and the result can be hilariously bad.What can we do about this problem? Probably not much, but we can certainly find a few laughs in what's become a bit of a trend.


We scoured the Internet to find for you and found the best-worst taxidermy jobs on trophy whitetails. When you're done viewing our best, share your best on our Facebook page.
