Abbie Skull Mounts of Memphis, TN
Professional Skull Preservation / Memphis Taxidermist
Memphis Skull Taxidermy / Licensed Tennessee Taxidermist
Hello and thank you for visiting our site! Many ask where the name comes from and Abbie was my loyal, female, black labrador retriever, duck hunting partner and friend for 13 yrs before she passed away in 2014.
Over the years I have grown my list to 1000's of clients and many new referrals as skull mounts continue to become more popular. We are in Memphis, TN and one of the largest skull cleaners in the south. With increasing interest in skulls most hunters, teachers, home decorators and collectors are always looking for great preservation of their skulls. Skull mounts are extremely popular for trophy mounts for deer not being considered for shoulder mounts and we specialize in the perfect cleaning and bone preservation of all skulls. We are on the leading edge of skull preservation and conveniently located in East Memphis. Anything you hunt or trap can be preserved as a skull mount and are fantastic compliments to your shoulder mounts. Never have skull mounts been more popular as well for home design and decor.
With 25+ yrs experience, having this option makes your decision extremely easy one to have ASM professionally create a beautiful skull mount for you. Your trophy comes back to you in fantastic, bone-white skull on vintage, re-claimed barnwood or several other mount options that are included in the price. Our barnwood is 1940's rough sawn solid oak and is 1.125" thick and you pick your favorite piece. Some bring in their own wood or ideas and I also offer two different metal hangers. We only do skulls and take great pride in our work. When you come to the shop I will talk about your deer and what wood or bracket you like best. Once your skull is done you will come back to shop and we'll spend some time to pick out what's best for your mount and I never do ANY drilling into skull. I have a great system to hang your skulls that can easily be removed and does no damage to skull while also holding deer at perfect angle to maximize antler display . Never drill screws into your skulls. We do a lot of national work and shipping is easy and encouraged.
Our process includes **NO boiling, bleaching, or painting of your skulls** All intensive steps are taken to ensure your mount is perfect and all work is 100% guaranteed. Many pictures, references, and skulls in shop are available at anytime and every mount is treated like my own.. You would be hard pressed to find a cleaner, whiter, more well preserved skull than the way we do it and that is why I have so many repeat clients, both local and nationwide. Your skull will be cleaned in such a way that it will look the same way in 20 years as it does now.
Many methods are used in attempting to create skull mounts and a lot of these methods most often have negative effects on skulls and antlers. Yellowing, cracking, bone/antler deterioration, and premature aging are some of the side effects. Our process includes professional cleaning, de-greasing, whitening, and sealing steps that are critical in skull mounts. My turnaround time on your skull is approximately 4-5 weeks and again we do NOT boil your skull.
I work with individual clients, taxidermists, universities, designers and many others around the country and have plenty of references upon request. Come by the shop anytime to see plenty of work on the walls. Wholesale pricing for taxidermists.
