Maybe not the closest but I just dropped my buck off to Dustin Berrato in herriman and he did a friends buck last year and I looked at some of his work and he does a great job and I know my buck will turn out great. He's very reasonably priced in my opinion as well
Packout is Awesome,
We already have one buck down to him this year, He has mounted My Moose , Desert Bighorn, 367 B&C Bull Elk, Black bear, along with 3 deer ( he also fixed somebody else's poor work from a few years back on one of my mounts) He also Mounted Mom's Rocky mountain Bighorn, along with 3 big Bucks from last Year,
+100 for Packout. I enjoy looking at his work everyday in my home. Probably why he has 3 more of my animals at his shop as we speak. If you want a good taxidermist there are many options. If you want a great taxidermist I would go to Mike at Sage Basin.------SS
Utah has some talented taxidermists. Packout is a standup guy and taxidermist. I also would recommend Josh Hunt in Morgan (Deer Creek Taxidermy), and Chad Draper at Blue Ridge Taxidermy. I would let any one of those guys work on my critters.
I have had a deer and a bear rug done by Curtis at Monarch Mountain Taxidermy. My sons have had probably 20 animals done there also. He does a good job and we keep going back. I have attached a couple of pictures.
I've had BighornWildlife do my last deer and my wife's. He'll get my La Sal late elk too. There's a link at the bottom of my post. (He is my brother, but he has worked with Josh Hunt and Dave Fergusen for the last 3+years). Josh shot his first bull elk with us this year too!!!! Good guy for sure.
