Recently received my tanned Red Stag and Chamois Buck cape back from my previous hunt with BGHNZ and just wanted to touch base and let you know I’m very impressed with the quality and finish they are squeaky clean and smell like roses! Thank you very much I’d be more than happy to deal with you again.

Spectacular workmanship worthy of trophy parks clients. Have had head skins from here and they are the quality of American taxidermist which have the best in the world. Jason preps head skins for taxidermist also throughout NZ as he is known for his quality! Bring on the roar! you will have more work from us at Santo Safaris.

I recently collected a Samba Deer Head Mount, Which I had done by Ruanine Tanning and Taxidermy. The Samba Deer was hunted in New Zealand, but was shipped to Australia after the work was complete. Ruahine Tanning and Taxidermy organised the whole transition and made the job effortless for myself. When I picked up the Mount in Australia, I was so impressed with the professional work. The head mount is Flawless. I would definitely use this company again for any future work.
