Jimmy has, also, worked one-on-one with
a World Award Winning Taxidermist.
We are both NC licensed taxidermist and members of the NC Taxidermy Association, National Taxidermy Association and many other clubs and associations that support wildlife conservation and our right to bear arms. Jimmy is also a Federal licensed taxidermist.
At Backwater Taxidermy, we specialize in small & big game, fish, birds (migratory & non-migratory), European mounts, rugs, etc. All of which are available with natural or custom bases and/or habitats.
We also offer skull cleaning and hide prep & tanning for other taxidermist. If you are a licensed taxidermist interested in having European mounts cleaned or having your customers' hides professional tanned and prepared for you to mount,

We are dedicated to the art of taxidermy,
producing mounts, and realistic habitats. Come and see us at Backwater Taxidermy and
