Broderick Head's Story
I 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, I continued to play around with taxidermy. By 1982 I was mounting deer, fish, African animals, birds and other trophies, which led to my being asked to work for a well-known taxidermist in my area. I had been working with him for about a year when I entered a L.S. White Deer in the local competition and I won a Blue Ribbon and a Peoples Choice Award. After that I went on to win many other awards including three in a world competition.
In 1987 I left the job I loved to start Broderick Head’s Taxidermy. I rented a building from 1988 to 1998 then moved to Bremen, GA. I am now located in Roopville, GA.
I have mounted animals for clients from around the U.S. to all over the world. Over the years I have 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
I have traveled to Africa and many states in the U.S. to study these animals in their natural habitats. This has allowed me 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."
Head's Taxidermy has been in business for 42 years.
