Deershorn owner, Steve Mudgett, has long been an animal enthusiast. He started hunting and farming at a young age and has been around wild animals his entire life. He began learning taxidermy some years ago from his mentor Bob Watkins of Millbury and since then has consistently worked to improve his skills. Over the years he has refined his craft and now competes regularly in taxidermy competitions including the annual convention in 2017 and 2018 for the New England Association of Taxidermists and most recently the 2019 World Taxidermy and Fish Carving Championship in Missouri where he took second place for his exceptional work!
Steve is a true perfectionist when it comes to taxidermy and the pieces that he creates are consistently referred to as “astounding”. His craftsmanship will get your attention, and his care and attention to detail will keep you coming back!
