Broderick Head's Story
Broderick started taxidermy work on a few birds back in 1977 and 1978 for the Northwestern School of Taxidermy. While working for a textile company and finishing up school, he continued to play around with taxidermy. By 1982 Broderick was mounting deer, fish, African animals, birds and other trophies, which led to him being asked to work for a well-known taxidermist in my area. He worked for about a year and decided to enter a lifesize Whitetail Deer in a local competition. He won a Blue Ribbon at the competition and a People's Choice Award. After that, he went on to win many other awards including three in a world competition.
In 1987, Broderick left the job he loved to start Broderick Head’s Taxidermy. He rented a building from 1988 to 1998 then moved to Bremen, GA. The business is now located in Roopville, GA.
Broderick has mounted animals for clients from around the U.S. to all over the world. Over the years he has mounted animals of all kinds and our taxidermy is one of the few that has mounted the Big 5:
LION, CAPE BUFFALO, ELEPHANT, LEOPARD and RHINO
Broderick has traveled to Africa and many states in the U.S. to study these animals in their natural habitats. This has allowed us to get first hand experience and recreate lifelike mounts as well as scenery.
"I have enjoyed my life as a Master Taxidermist and love to put animals back as close as I can to what God has created in nature… only God can do it better. I have been a member of SCI and NWTF and am a lifetime member of the National Taxidermy Association. God has given me this talent to be an artist with nature and I feel I am blessed."
Broderick Head passed away on January 30th, 2021. Broderick Head's Taxidermy is now operated by his son, Paul, and his daughter-in-law, Dani.
His son, Paul, has been working with Broderick since he was 12 years old. His daughter-in-law, Dani, has been working with Broderick since 2010. They were taught the taxidermy trade by Broderick and now use what they were taught to continue to deliver high quality mounts.
