About Us

Welcome to Birds Only! Taxidermy. Feel free to browse the site and as you do please remember I specialize in Wild Turkey Taxidermy Only. I believe that in order to provide you the customer the best, most realistic, and most artistic turkey mount possible that I should specialize in one thing and not many. I choose to to limit my intake of birds each season to 75 in the spring season and I put 25 on what I call my fall list. I only take a few turkey a year in order to reassure that you will recieve your trophy within a decent time frame of a year or less, with the quality you expect. I hope you will see in my work that I am passionate about my work. I am and always will be seeking to get better in the years to come because quality not quantity is a must at Birds Only! Taxidermy.

I am married to a beautiful woman named Tammy and we have four beautiful children at home and one in heaven. At home we have three girls- Lauren, Emma, Olyvia and a son John the 2nd. I am a full time father and in my free time I am a Mechanical Designer. At night one day a week I am a taxidermist. I have now been mounting turkey’s for the public for over 25 years. My hunting passion as of now is turkey hunting. My true passion is my risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and my family. I enjoy learning and growing in my relationship with my Lord. I truly believe as men go, so goes our society. Because of that I am passionate about growing together with men who love the Lord and are just as passionate about their relationship with Him.
