"Thank you for a detailed, realistic trophy mount! It’s obvious great care was taken to preserve the memory of my hunt and thrilling buck harvest. I can’t overstate how happy I am with the quality of your work. I thoroughly enjoyed exchanging stories from the field and discussing our favorite spots at White Clay! I look forward to seeing you again, either heading into the woods or, calling on you again at your shop."
"Bill does a fantastic job. I had a Turkey and a deer mounted and I can't say enough. He's very meticulous and treats every mount as if it is his own. Very flexible and knowledgeable of what makes the perfect mount. He works with you so you get exactly what you want. Hopefully, I'll be back soon."
"BIG THANK YOU to Bill Petrick Taxidermy of Wilmington, Delaware for the fantastic job on my Maryland buck of a lifetime. The realism is as close to nature as you can get. He Absolutely looks alive!"
-Roger Everett, MD
"I am very please with my shoulder mount that you did for me. My thoughts are wow you took your time and really brought the deer to life. You were very professional and knowledgeable on what I wanted and kept me in the loop the whole time. You even called me to make sure on what I wanted done to the mount. I would recommend you to anyone that is looking for a well quality mount. And I want to thank you again Petrick and I look forward on doing business with you again"
-Jesse Regan , PA
"Bill, I just wanted to thank you again for such great work and craftsmanship. You really know how to bring the hunt back to the day it happen! For that I will always be thankful. Like I told you why this deer means much to me, it will never be forgotten just like my brother.
Thanks so much and happy hunting. I look forward to seeing you in the fall!!"
"I have been hunting for over fifty years and have decorated the walls of my home with several fine mounts. My most recent buck, a 10 pointer, is the most magnificent one due to Bill's extraordinary craftsmanship. This taxidermist incorporates the finest details into his work. His talent is off the chart! I highly recommend Bill to any hunter who appreciates excellence."
-Larry Brannen, PA
"This man will not disappoint you and you will get your moneys worth and then some. He made my deer look as if it was in its purest element. He has a magnificent craftsmanship that emulates through his work. My deer's Nose has remarkable detailing especially in the texture of the vibrissae, the Crotches of the eyes are intrinsic, the Lips seems are flawless, and the Pose of the deer has a beautiful natural element to it. Will definitely be going back and recommend"
"Bill, just wanted to thank you again for the awesome job you did on my deer. Guys like me work hard to harvest a trophy deer let alone a P&Y buck. It was nice to see someone care about my deer as much if not more than me. The pride that you take in your work really shows. Hope to see you next year with another. ¿Thanks again,¿"
"Bill. I wanted to take the time to thank you in making a great day hunting into an everlasting memory. Making me feel like a life long friend from the start was a tribute to the perfection you put into my trophy. Looking forward to this season thank you. "
"Bill, October 2019, I bagged the biggest buck to date. As a first time mounter I had a decision to make on where to take my deer. I don’t think I could’ve chose a better guy to go with! Amazing quality, a true master piece. I’d like to thank you for helping me preserve my trophy forever. You’ve earned a lifetime customer."
"I was fortunate to harvest my first deer, a beautiful 10 point, during the 2019 archery season. In looking for a taxidermist, Petrick Taxidermy was highly recommended and it is easy to see why. Bill was fantastic from my first phone call through picking up my completed buck. The attention to detail is apparent and the amount of time and care that Bill put into my buck is truly special. I am blown away by the quality of his work and I am confident that my buck will last a lifetime. Choosing Petrick Taxidermy was the best decision that I could have made. I will never go anywhere else and neither should you! Thanks Bill! "
"I wanted to mount my first buck and Petrick Taxidermy came highly recommended by Dinenno's Custom Butchering. The mount was done in less than a year at a fair price. When I brought it home, my wife was blown away at how well it was done and Bill's attention to detail. It's now proudly displayed in our family room. I will be bringing my next mount to Petrick Taxidermy!"
"I want to thank you Bill for the excellent work you did mounting my buck. I have 10 other bucks mounted but the one that you did for me is definitely the nicest, most anatomically correct. I really appreciate the time you took to explain the cleaning and care that I should do in order to keep it looking it’s best. No other taxidermist ever mentioned after-care. If I’m blessed to shoot another big one, you’ll be getting my business!"
-Tom Frick, PA
"Firstly, I’ll say I couldn’t be more delighted with the amazing work Bill has done to replicate the 26.5” walleye I landed in the summer of 2019. This is both my first walleye and first mount. I’ve had it up on my wall for a few days now, and every time I look at it, I’m sincerely more and more pleased with the craftsmanship and quality of the final product. Bill is truly a master of his craft and will certainly be #1 on my list of where to take any trophy’s I might catch in the future."
-Chris Mahala, NJ
"Trout can be a difficult fish to mount. I searched online for someone that I could trust. It took some time, but after seeing that work that Bill has done I know I made the right choice. I couldn’t be happier with it. If I am lucky enough catch another trophy fish I will definitely be back."
-Scott Stay, NJ
"I have known Bill for several yrs. He mounted all of my son's deer and I was impressed with his work. When I shot my 1st buck ever, I am 72 yrs old, with my x-bow, I knew where it was going to be mounted. He even explained how to put it on the wall and maintain its appearance. Thanks Bill, it looks great on my den wall."
"I’ve had several trophies done by Bill. This has included deer, bear, and several fish. There is no one else I would ever trust to do my work. It’s not only his attention to detail but the passion and energy he exhibits towards his work is phenomenal. He will also share his vast knowledge of the outdoors with his customers. "
"Amazing work!! That’s the first thing I thought when I saw my son’s deer mounted. This is the 2nd time working with Bill and I can honestly say we won’t go anywhere else. Bill is friendly, knowledgeable and the excitement about his work is contagious! He made the entire experience a pleasure!! He kept us up to date and explained the entire progress which was quite interesting. Bill, the smile you put on my son’s face is priceless! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
-Ann & Luke Swift
"Thank you Mr. Petrick! You have perpetuated our beloved Miss Lacey! We will treasure her forever! She seems so real & alive! You have given her Eternal LIfe!
Much Gratitude & Love.
-MaryJo, Joe & Nickie Naegele, Pennsylvania
I have been a customer of Bill’s now for 2 years. He has done two outstanding duck mounts for me. When I harvested my first trophy buck this pst year there was no doubt in my mind Bill was the right man for the job! Let me tell you he did an outstanding job! I have seen a lot of mounts in my life but there are none that compare to what Bill does. I have never seen a mount look so real that you think it’s going to jump right off the wall! The level of detail and quality of craftsmanship you get from Bill is incredible!
Not only is his work incredible but the quality of customer service you get from Bill is just as outstanding. Not only will you receive text messages about the progress that is being made on your mount, you will also get an excellent tutorial about how to properly care for your mount and also the proper ways to hang it before you leave the shop.
From the moment you walk in the door with your trophy to the moment you walk out with it, you can tell how passionate Bill is about his work. Sometimes I think he is almost more excited than I am about my trophies! I can tell you from first hand experience that if you choose Petrick taxidermy you will not regret it!!
"On opening day 2019 of archery season I was able to harvest my first ever full velvet buck. Because I live in Pa I did not have a taxidermist in the Maryland/Delaware area. Bill was recommended by my butcher and because of his wonderful customer service Bill took time out of his day to pick up my deer from the butcher. The knowledge and hard work that Bill puts in to his deer is truly a work of art and far exceeded my expectations. I will continue to use Bill because I know anything that is given to him will be handled with care and created with passion. When we get our trophy back it is something we can look at, remember the day we harvested the deer and cherish that moment for a very long time."
Thanks again for everything you did with this deer.."
-Greg Dessinger, Pennsylvania
Another one to leave Bill’s shop. It’s not just his attention to detail and quality of work that impresses me, its his enthusiasm and the time he spends with his customer. Thanks Bill, a customer for life.
"This is my first bear and mount. I wanted the best and Bill did a fantastic job. I was amazed on how he brought it back to life. He is the best."
I was recommended to Bill by a couple close friends. I brought Bill a canvasback duck I shot in Maryland. A first for me. I knew as soon as I met Bill my bird was in the best hands in the industry. Bill was just as pumped as I was to get this mature bird mounted. After a short couple months Bill's turn around time was quicker than I could imagine. And the quality of the product he finished went above and beyond anything I ever imagined. Bill earned a life long customer! His enthusiasm, dedication, and personality were second to none. Great guy, very good with communication and the best there is in my opinion. Thanks again Bill!
"Mr. Petrick did an amazing job on my first mount. I’ve never been to a taxidermist before and I’ll never go to anyone else. I value the pride he takes in his work and I’m proud to have his work on my wall!"
“After making less than a stellar shot on a trophy of a lifetime I was nervous about the outcome of my black bear. Bill made my bear look as good as it did moments before I shot it. Even though I am states away, this won’t be my last trip to Bill Petrick Taxidermy”
"I absolutely love my mount that Petrick Taxidermy has created for me. Bill really puts realistic life to my 2018 buck that I was able to get 5 minutes after I shot his girlfriend. I thought I would like to keep that moment. I explained to Bill what I was thinking about and he created a beautiful mount that I should be able to enjoy forever. Don't hesitate to use Bill for your lifetime trophies. He is very talented and will try to do whatever you would like and make it lifelike. I found a taxidermist for all my future trophies! Thank you very much Bill. Happy Hunting!
"After shooting my first buck in the 2019 second archery season I was very excited to get it mounted. A friend of mine highly recommended Bill Petrick for his excellent quality and workmanship. After dropping off my cape and picking out the mount I wanted I got to see first hand of what high quality Workmanship looks like and was amazed on the quality and attention to detail of every animal that was done by Bill and knew that I had come to the right place. I was informed well in advance when my deer was close to being complete and throughout the entire process. I could not believe the detail that was put into the mount as well as the quality of workmanship which is unmatched! I am now a customer for life and will highly recommend Petrick Taxidermy to anyone who wants taxidermy done right with extremely high quality. Bill, thanks again for the awesome job and fast turnaround 5/5 stars!"
"Over this past year Bill has provided incredibly quick turnaround on a number of projects for me, including this impressive shoulder mount of my 12-year-old grandson’s first whitetail. Bill’s experience, keen artistic eye and attention to detail is what makes his quality work stand out from the others."
--Kurt F., PA
"Bill you do very good high quality work and you take a lot of pride in what you do. I give Petrick Taxidermy a five star rating. Thanks for what you have done."
"I had just returned to hunting in the fall of 2016. Spent many days in the woods until November 2018 when I finally got a beautiful 8 pointer. My butcher recommended Bill Petrick as a taxidermist. I called on a Saturday and Bill contacted me right away and was at the butcher the next day to pick the cape up. I was kept informed throughout the entire process. My mount was finished in early February and I was astonished at the amazing quality and workmanship. Bill is extremely focused on giving the best product to his customers. I would say that he is one of the leaders in his craft and I am now a customer for life. Thanks Bill for such a fine mount."
"I recently picked up my November 2018 deer mount from Bill. As expected the quality and workmanship were excellent. The real bonus is the timing and working with Bill! The text messages with updates were great. Harvested in November and on my wall in February! Thanks Bill!"
"Bill, I appreciate the great work you did on my deer. And would recommend you to anybody, because the closer I look the more impressed I am with your work. I can tell you love doing what you do because you go the extra mile to get the most out of the specimen you are working on. Whether it has fur, feathers, or fins I’m impressed Thanks again."
"I've never had a deer mounted before. I had no idea what to expect but I am totally unequivocally satisfied. The deer looks great and Bill was informative throughout the whole process keeping me posted. When I do it again I'll be a repeat customer which is the highest compliment I can give. I also really appreciated the advice on how to hang it and how to keep it clean. Thanks again Bill."
"I’m a HS student and new hunter. I was very excited when I had the chance at this buck and definitely wanted to have him mounted. My father and his friends use Petrick Taxidermy so taking him to Bill was a no brainer. I couldn’t be happier with the way he turned out. I love the realism, his neck, his eyes, and the overall quality of work. Thanks Bill for getting him done before Christmas morning, I was shocked when I came down the stairs and saw him hanging there."
"Bill, I wanted to thank you! The backyard buck as I call him, came to life and brings me back to the hunt every time I see him on the wall. Your attention to detail is unbelievable. I also really appreciated the time you spent going over the details. I never had someone do that before. You can count on this, I will refer you to all my friends, family, and hunting club members here in NJ and PA. Thanks again!"
--Marty O'Rourke, NJ
"Bill, it was a pleasure having you do my biggest buck to date and with a bow at that. Wanted to let you know I will be recommending you to friends, and others who harvest, in the near future and seasons to come. I got my deer back in a very reasonable time, and the work was well worth the money for the quality and preservation. I look forward to giving you more business in the future. Again, thank you."
"Bill, Thanks for bringing my trophy to life. I can't say enough about the finished product. It's awesome to see how passionate you are about delivering a quality product. I've also enjoyed our discussions about the passion we share be it either fishing or hunting. I am one satisfied customer."
"Bill, I was fortunate to experience Bill Petrick's Taxidermy this past season of 2018. He was highly recommended. Which he proved worthy of. He did such an amazing job. He was a pleasure to deal with. I can't stress enough the importance of a quality taxidermist. For me, I want to be confident when waiting for my trophy to be complete. This man achieved that and then some. I know where my future mounts will go. Thanks again Bill."
--Archery Hunter Dave
"A big thank you to Bill Petrick at Petrick's Taxidermy for the great mount he did for my son's first buck. Hands down one of the quickest turnarounds, and best experiences I've had with dealing with a taxidermist. His attention to detail is spot on. I would recommend his shop to all my hunting friends."
"After having Bill take care of 2 previous pieces for me, (a turkey mount, and a deer hide), I knew his work was outstanding, so when I laid down my trophy buck this year, I knew where I was taking him. On 10/23/18, I discussed with Bill what I wanted to do, and set it in motion. Bill mentioned there was a chance I would have it by Christmas. Needless to say I was excited. On 12/22/18, I get the text on completion. I couldn't believe it! I was amazed at his magic! The realism of this mount ins unmatched Every time I look at it, I swear it's going to grunt at me, and jump off the wall. Thank you so much for your outstanding effort and attention to detail, Bill. You will definitely be getting my trophies from here on!"
"Bill, Thanks for the fabulous deer shoulder mounts this year and last. Artistically and beautifully done. Compared to our mounts from others, they are far more lifelike and handsome. We appreciate your skill and attention to detail. We will be bringing you all our trophies to do. Many thanks."
--Kai and Tyler Lasson
"Bill, Thank you for completing my turkey mount in such a great turnaround. I am grateful that you were able to preserve my trophy and allow me to contribute with the barn wood panel. A lesser person may not have allowed their art to be displayed on someone else's piece, but your confidence and results are above par. Thanks again, see you in the future."
"My son and I were fishing at one of our secret spots, when we hooked up with a 21" Largemouth Bass. We are catch and release fishermen, but this was the biggest bass we have every caught to date. I have never used a taxidermist before, so I went to the internet. We reviewed several local sites and decided to call Bill. He was honest about not being the cheapest, but was confident that we would be pleased with the outcome. It was done in time to give it to my son for his 12th Birthday, who thought it was amazing. I was also very pleased. Bill will be doing our next father and son trophy fish. Thanks Bill!"
"Bill was exceptional to do business with. I needed to find a new taxidermist since “ my guy” was no longer doing skin mounts for fish. Bill was just as excited as I was when I walked into his shop with my golden trout. His work is exceptional and my fish looks exactly like it did the day I landed it. He kept me up to date on the process and delivered an exceptional mount just as he promised. Bill is now “my guy”.
"When I caught my trophy brown trout I knew that this fish was one that I needed to mount. I called Bill and he was very excited for me and also for the opportunity to preserve my fish. I . His work is second to none. What an awesome job!!" can tell you that I’m VERY VERY happy that I chose Bill
"After I caught my best trout I knew I wanted to have it mounted. I was recommended to Bill, who took the time to explain the difference between a skin mount and a replicated fish and how to preserve your fish after the catch. I was hesitant at first since I thought I had damaged the fish before I even brought it to Bill. I chose to go with the skin mount after talking to Bill about the process. Just meeting the guy for the first time, I was confident that he was going to do a good a job. When I finally got the call that my fish was ready to come home I couldn’t wait to go down to the shop to pick it up. There’s no way to describe in words how happy I was with this mount. The details and colors of this fish are truly amazing. I am very happy with my trophy and will be bringing my next trophy here!
"Bill has been great to work with and has done a fantastic job now on two ducks for me. He's very responsive and even reached out to me on several occasions to run ideas by on what might look better. The Redhead turned out unbelievable and will for sure be a display to brag about for years to come."
"Hey Bill. So I made a plaque out of Red Oak for the 10 point buck that you mounted for me. It is beautiful! You did a fine job mounting my deer! I also appreciate your willingness to talk with me and offer help and advice! You are a man of integrity and I like dealing with you! Oh, and the Wild Boar that you mounted for me 30 years ago; you did a great job with that as well! It still looks good after all these years!"
--Gary Peterson, NJ
"I approached Petrick Taxidermy looking to preserve my biggest buck to date.
Bill showed me different mounts types and mounting options in his shop, I decided on a pedestal mount. I built a nice pedestal base out of barn wood and Bill was very open and helpful with the process.
The result was everything I expected and more.
One thing I liked was their attention to detail and vast knowledge of taxidermy.
I found the experience absolutely awesome!!!!!!
I would recommend Petrick Taxidermy to anyone wanting to preserve their trophy with quality that will last a lifetime. Thanks a lot!!"
"If you can appreciate good taxidermy, Bill Petrick is your man. I have been using Bill for a handful of years and will most definitely continue to take my trophy’s to him. His passion for what he does certainly shows in his work. Bills attention to detail from top to bottom is second to none. Perfectionist, honest, and all around great guy. Highly recommend!"
"Very happy with my Mallard hybrid I had mounted. Bird looks great for how bad I messed up during the hunt. Very quick turn around and a pleasure to do business with. Will bring my next trophy here to get preserved for many years to come. Thank you for the great work."
"First time using Petrick Taxidermy. Bill's attention to detail is second to none. As a life long hunter, with 20 plus mounts in my den, the snow goose is right at the top of the list of quality mounts. From top to bottom, the detail in the eye setting, to color detail of the bill and feet are spot on. Without a doubt the most lifelike of all my taxidermy. Wish I would have known Bill over the last 20 years as he would have done ALL of my mounts. He will do all of my future work for sure. Quick turn around time and honest pricing."
I was beyond happy with the work that Bill did on my wood duck mount. He is super professional and you can tell his passion for what he does just by having a small conversation with him! His attention to detail and realism has secured my business with him for every other mount that I want done.
"Perfection, precision, and detail. The three words that pop in my head when I think of Bill Petrick Taxidermy. Bill brought my trophy to life. The detail in the rutting neck is absolutely astonishing. My trophy of a lifetime has never looked so alive! Big thanks to Bill for bringing my trophy to life!"
"Thank you Bill for a great job on Zack and my ducks. They turned out great. Awesome turn around time."
--Kevin and Zack Walker
"Thanks for the great looking job mounting my first buck, looks so life like on the wall. The wife and kids love it."
"Bill thanks again for doing such a great job. I am beyond happy with it and the work you did on the neck is absolutely astonishing. Everyone always compliments the work you did. It is quite the addition to the man cave .
I will most certainly be coming to you for any of my taxidermy needs. Thanks again."
"Thank you so much for the professional help suggesting this beautiful mount. I can’t stop looking at this buck. Absolutely beautiful work, and world class attention to fine details. I hope to see you again in the fall. Thank you!"
"I'm a fisherman who enjoys having the lasting memory of a fish mount. Bill makes each fish look like the day it was caught. He listens to what you want and creates it better than you imagined it! If you're not sure what you want, he gives you options and adds his creative touch to make it unique. I can't think of a better way to remember a special fishing trip or a trophy fish. I have a wall of fish and priceless memories. The most recent and one of my favorites, is my grandson's first citation crappie. I'm thankful to Bill for his taxidermy services. I've been a happy customer of Petrick Taxidermy for 20 years and highly recommend him. Best Regards."
"Bill I would like to take the time to compliment you on the Striper/Rockfish mount you recently finished for me. As you know my father contacted you to do the piece for me for my birthday. I must say you are truly an artist with the airbrush gun, the way you painted the diamonds on the seven stripes and blended the iridescence on the cheeks is amazing! I can't stop looking at it and will enjoy this for a lifetime. We look forward to having you do more work for us in the future. Thank you."
“10 out of 10 Service, quality, and professionalism!! I didn’t know the first thing about preserving this memory for my son. Work was completed as promised and i have received numerous compliments in the quality of work.
Bill truly puts his heart into his craft.
Thank you for preserving this memory “
"I was extremely satisfied with the full shoulder mount of my Wyoming mule deer buck.
The quality is impeccable to any other mount I own, and the speed at which the work was done was within the time frame communicated to me. \I will certainly be calling upon Petrick Taxidermy for future mounts.
Thank you and best of luck on your future hunts."
--Jack Speckhals, PA
"Bill Petrick has done an excellent job of Taxidermy for me. Bill’s work on a whitetall deer and just recently a Redhead met all my expectations in terms of the high quality Taxidermy. Bill will continue to do my taxidermy work."
"This year I was fortunate enough to take the biggest deer of my life. I have never used Petrick Taxidermy, but Bill had a great reputation for quality so I decided to give him a shot. I could not have been happier with that choice. I have other mounts, but when I see them together with this deer the level of detail really stands out. If you want to see what a rutting neck/shoulder should look like, Bill Petrick is the man for the job."
"Where do I start? A friend of mine had used Bill Petrick’s taxidermy services for his trophies, and when I harvested my buck of a lifetime he suggested I use Bill. From my first phone call conversation with Bill, I felt he was the man to preserve my trophy. Bill didn’t just take my trophy, he took my excitement and enthusiasm to heart and created the most attention-to-detail “Wall Pedestal Mount” I ever thought possible. His meticulous attention to detail is second to none. It doesn’t matter if it’s not what most folks would call a trophy or not, Bill treats it as though it’s the greatest trophy ever.
Rest assured, if you choose Petrick Taxidermy there is no reason to look any further!
--One Happy Hunter, Brian Jubb
