We are experienced in North American, African and Asian animals. Many of our trophies have come from Africa, New Zeeland, Asia, Europe, Canada, and the United States. Quality is of great importance so we continue to ensure attractive life like features down to the last detail. Creating a life-like reproduction by length and species including fish are available. Send us any photos of your trophy so we can personalize your mounts. All bases are custom made to enhance your trophy. Using the most economical wood to the most exotic with skin inlays. Our bases are made by the finest cabinet makers insuring you a fine piece of furniture you will be proud to display. The details of the mounts require customer input almost like an interior design. You can choose the expression, poses and mounts. This will be an important decision as you will want your mounted trophy in the direction that suits your room. When choosing Skins and Scales as your taxidermist you will be provided with free crate labels, shipping tags and C.I.T.E.S.’s applications.

For centuries the evolution of hunting has generations from Father to Son rebuilding spirits and relationships with nature. Bucky Flowers has a life long love of all wildlife. He is the owner of Skins and Scales Taxidermy. Capturing the memories and experience of a hunters trophy. Seizing the moment in preservation, Bucky Flowers brings the Art of taxidermy to life. Proud to be in business since 1976 his experience with taxidermy takes a history turn growing up in Florida around family and friends that were hunters and fisherman. Purely amazed by his father’s deer head display Bucky decided to try his hand at the trade around the age of 13 years old. Working with mail order books and learning to mount a few small birds and squirrels. Soon his determination and love of the trade would find him traveling to many destinations for a once in a lifetime hunt. With numerous trips to Africa, Canada, Mexico and more Bucky has captured the splendor and magnificence of the moment. With the help of several skilled employees, all individually talented in areas of expertise, the common goal is a team effort.
