Lol !! He is the one retiring. My Brother has an Axis Buck and called Him . Howard told him he is retiring and stopped taking in new work back in February.

Sorry but it Looks like you will be looking for a new Taxidermist as well. It’s going to be a surprise for a lot of people. I used to work for him when I was a teenager and I’m almost 46 now. He is going to be missed .

Tons of good options in the GENERAL Houston area. I guess I have about 60+ mounts with 55 of those being done by Woods & Water Taxidermy...….Conroe/Woodlands area. Rowdy & his wife Dena are GREAT folks to work with!

Ive used both Woods & Water Taxidermy and Conroe Taxidermy. Both did outstanding jobs on my mounts. Roughly same cost and both took around 12 months.
