Looks like I am headed to the hill country sometime between April-June for an axis hunt, with the odds being of shooting another exotic.

What would you do about game processing and taxidermy?

Wenzel Lonestar Meat Company in Hamilton does a good job. And Black Dog Taxidermy there is my first choice in central Texas.

I've had good results from Bernhard and Woodbury, both in Ingram.

Are there any good meat processors in Fredericksburg? What about the Llano/Burnet area?

Beware of Artistic Impressions. He is a convicted poacher from Wyoming and relocated to Fredericksburg,tx. Search him online and you will find out all you need to know

I don't know what he's done in the past but he's an excellent taxidermist and came to me highly recommended. I have been to his shop in F-burg and he has some amazing work on display.

Yep. I judge people based on what my experience with them is. Not what they did or didn't do in history. His work is incredibly good and reasonably priced. Outstanding guide as well. Almost every taxi has negative reviews. It's a tough business, and hard to please some people.

That said, if my customers are treated wrong by a taxidermist or guide, I take it personally.

I can agree with that. You can't change the past. As long as his work is good and he treats his customers right I guess that is all that really matters.

So far so good. But in business your always on trial in some way. Ranches, guides, outfitters, taxis, etc.
