Default Central Texas Taxidermy Recommendations

My taxidermist is about 1.5 hours from my house and I need to find someone local that does good work at a reasonable price. I just don't have much time in the next couple of days to take it to him.
I put it in the freezer last night and wife is already asking how long it is going to be there. This stud is 23 inches wide and is taking up alot of room. Good problem to have.

I live in Buda and work in downtown Austin.

Bottom pic is the style I am wanting.

Thanks

Just fyi, that Randy had a severe heart attack. I agree that he does excellent work and delivers when he gives you a date it will be ready. I'm pretty sure his shop is still open and in operation, but Randy has a long road to recovery. Please keep him in your prayers.

In the future, if you peel the head I bet your wife will be much more tolerant and may not even know a cape is in the freezer.
