About Us

Who Are We?

Mountain Deer Taxidermy started with a love of hunting and fishing, so Rodney & Theresa Elmer know how important your trophy is to you, know matter how big or small! Whether it's your Boone & Crocket white tailed deer or your daughter's first perch - those memories are worth saving. 


With over 32 years of experience in taxidermy, we pride ourselves in our ability to preserve your trophy to look as it did in its natural habitat. We work annually on about 300 mountings and presentations of many varieties of Vermont wildlife; deer, bears, moose, coyotes, fox, fisher, turkeys and more. We also work on animals from other parts of the globe including Africa. One of his more interesting requests was a 20-foot long snake. In addition to being entertaining, the stories of the hunters who are our customers provide information allowing us to suggest possible ways to present and mount the trophies that they have bagged. Our high quality work can be seen by our many repeat customers that seek out our services. The presentation of your trophy can be head wall mounts or full body depictions. We also provide the service of State of Vermont Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Big Game Reporting Station. A specially designed outdoor scale system with tall vertical clearance is also provided for easy weigh-in of all species.
