Safari Life Taxidermy Testimonials

“Brendon, I wanted to shoot you a note and tell you how happy I am with the work you guys did on my trophy room at the ranch. As you know, we have used several different taxidermists over the years and as a result ended up with a moth problem. Thank you for identifying the problem and getting a plan in place to get it fixed. The job you guys did on my black bear is incredible. You truly saved my memories. Can't wait to get the pieces you are currently working on, installed.“
   – Martin T., Texas

“Brendon, I knew I was in good hands with my taxidermy work when you repaired the horrific bobcat another taxidermist said was “his best work”. The way you were able to get the bobcat to look like a bobcat and a trophy to be proud of, I knew I had nothing to worry about once my African trophies were to arrive in your shop. I couldn’t be happier with the way my African trophies turned out and the warthog came out unbelievable. I get compliments on it every time someone sees it for the first time. I can’t wait for my next adventure and I will definitely be bringing all my trophies back to Safari Life. Brendon is truly an artist who will capture those moments in the field for a lifetime to come. Thanks Brendon for your outstanding work and friendship. “

“Brendon did an amazing job on my wife’s first buck. So good, in fact, that I have trusted Safari Life Taxidermy with 3 deer mounts already!”

“We are so thankful to have had several friends recommend Brendon Wood to design and install our African trophy room. He and his team did a fantastic job un-crating, cleaning, prepping and installing our mounts. As a South African who grew up in the business, he has a great sense for how the animals should be displayed to best showcase their magnificent beauty. Brendon has a true passion for his work and his contribution to the final stages of our safari experience helped perpetuate the memories of a lifetime. Thanks! “

“I am very picky. Brendon is the only taxidermist that I trust with my trophies. Fair prices, quick turnaround and most of all, incomparable work. I have recommended many of my friends and they are all extremely satisfied with all aspects of Brendon’s work. Plus, he’s a good guy.”
     – David Navarro

“There is a beautifully mounted axis deer in my living room! I am not a fan of mounted animals, but when my husband brought this one home it was art that needed to be displayed. Thank you Brendon Wood. You truly have a gift of art and an ability to make these animals look lifelike.”
     – Rosemary T. Lopez

“Thank you for my amazing bobcat and mountain lion mount. It is by far the coolest mount I’ve seen. The professionalism of your business is outstanding. I would recommend our best customers to you anytime”
    – John R. Dury

“In 2010 I met Brendon at a National Wild Turkey Federation annual banquet.  He had a variety of his work on display.  I was impressed with his work and he seemed to be a good guy.  I made a mental note that I would try him out when I had some taxidermy work.  Shortly thereafter, I took him a turkey.  His work was splendid and priced reasonably and I was impressed with the quick turnaround.  So the following fall I took him a deer.  What I got back some of the best work I had ever seen.  Since then I have utilized Safari Life for all of my taxidermy.  I have sent friends, neighbors, coworkers to Brendon and they have all been thrilled with the quality of the work and the short wait time.  After their first experience, they have all used Safari Life exclusively…it’s that good.  Recently I have had some restoration work done on a number of my older trophies originally done by other taxidermists.  They have come back better than new.  Here is a strong clue as to the kind of man Brendon is: he has repeatedly volunteered his time helping out Wounded Warriors by guiding them on hunts, doing their taxidermy work, and serving as a mentor.  Additionally he has done work with and supported all the conservation groups we as hunters support such as the NWTF and the RMEF just to name two. In my estimation, you’re not likely to find a better man or taxidermist.”
