*Agrens Animal Artistry can not take in work on migratory birds*

*Michigan DNR now requires all deer and other cervids from ANY STATE outside of Michigan to be properly cleaned of all brain/spinal tissue in the fight against CWD. I can no longer offer skull cleaning on deer from out of state unless they have been properly prepared. Please contact us if your hunting out of state and need recommendations on a taxidermist to properly cape your deer so you can bring it back to Michigan.*



During the 2016 season I kept getting in way too many short capes intended to become shoulder mounts from people processing their own deer.

Modern day forms require a lot more brisket and leg then ever before. In order to give you the best mount possible I need more hide. Here is a photo of what I need. I prefer the legs be "tubed" so I can make the cuts but if you follow this photo and video it will be fine.


Proper field care is the MOST important step in the Taxidermy process! Please view our Field Care Guide for more information.

Because of CWD if your hunting out of state please view the caping video we have posted (we did not make this video but its very good)
