About Us

Welcome to Beards Only Taxidermy. Feel free to browse the site and as you do please remember that 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 take in a limited number of turkeys each year in order to ensure that you will receive your trophy within a decent time frame of a year or less, with the quality you expect. I hope you will see 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 Beards 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 full-time taxidermist. I have now been mounting turkeys for the public for over 28 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.
