Chris, Shelley and the guys @mountnviewtaxidermy continue to do some phenomenal work and they always out do themselves when it’s comes to quality wildlife mounts. Their work speaks for itself and it’s the reason they are my number one referred Taxidermy shop.

Keep up the good work guys and thank you for all you do!

Chris has done work for me for 16 years. All my family’s for many more. Every single piece is incredibly well done and life-like. Him and his team are always willing to go the extra mile for their clients and to capture each mount the way I envision. I always have and would recommend Mount N View Taxidermy to anyone and everyone!!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

You want to talk about great customer service? That’s what I got today from Chris Favour at Mount N View Taxidermy this morning. I had an alligator and a hog that we’re damaged in shipping, knowing that I was anxious to get them hung Chris drove down from Flagstaff this morning and did the repairs in my warehouse. Not the ideal working conditions but they are now perfect! I can’t recommend him enough.

Thanks Chris!

I honestly cannot tell you the first time I met Chris.  I can tell you he was working hard as he always is everytime I come to the shop.  Chris is easily the hardest working person I’ve ever met.

Chris doesn’t just work hard, he is VERY good at what he does.  He is always pleasant and helpful, even after a long day and even when a normal human wouldn’t be.
I have counted on Chris for many many years as a friend and as my local taxidermist.  I’ve long ago lost count of the many hundreds of trophies we’ve taken Chris over the years.  He’s done a wonderful job on every one of those mounts.
No matter the season, critter, time of year or time of day, Chris is always a welcome sight at the end of a successful hunt.
There are times where we are so wore out and tired we are anxious to drop off our very large, very dirty, and very heavy trophies to Chris.  He unloads them and we can stop worrying about keeping them cold.  Once Chris has them, we can move on knowing they are in professional hands.
Bison heads and capes in January,  antelope capes in August, sheep capes in December and everything else we bring Chris large or small all gets treated with care and attention.
There are other taxidermist.  Some are good. Some are poor.  None are better.
Chris is local, has been around forever, charges fairly and provides high value.  He cares deeply.  He is everything you want in a taxidermist and I am proud to call him my friend.
Northern Arizona hunters are blessed to have his shop so close to home.
I trust Chris and am shocked at how quickly he turns around the mountain of work that he does.
You don’t have to worry about where your deposit goes or when your mount will be done.  Chris manages his shop professionally and hits his promised delivery dates.
My professional recommendation is to use Chris at Mount-N-View taxidermy.  You won’t regret it.

I wanted to thank you for the great job you did on my mule deer.  I have it in my office and everyone asks me who did the mount because it looks so good!

Thank you!

Just want to thank you for the awesome job you did with my son’s deer.  We are the ones from Payson who paid for the half off auction last year at the Fish For Funds.  Mu son is still beaming due to your work.  Great job and thank you again.

Again I want to thank you for the incredible work of art done on my coues buck mount.  I have many mounts within my home, and although he may be the smallest, it is now my very favorite!

The eyes, face and nose of the buck is of the finest attention to detail I have ever seen.  He looks like he could jump off my wall at any time.  Add to that the beautiful craftsmanship of the scenery of the pedestal wall mount, and I can’t quit staring at him.  Even my wife is impressed and asked why all my mounts don’t look as good.

I also appreciate your excellent communication, quick “turn around” time, and the professional and secure way it was prepared, packed and shipped.  I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone, and certainly will use you again in the future.

Thanks so much!

I have been out of town and just got acquainted with my mount over the weekend.  He looks perfect and you did a great job!  Had very lively debate with my wife as to where I get to hang it plus numerous input from neighbor wives (nothing supportive of course).  In the end, he hangs in the dining room.

Thank you!

I just finished the big shuffle and got my Marco Polo hung today.  I just want to thank you for your craftsmanship and you need to know I am as proud of it as you are!

Thank you!

I can’t believe it!   I have my Mule Deer and Mountain Lion.  You have done an amazing job on both, world class really.  I know you know that, but just wanted to tell you again, not that I had any doubt at all.  I do mean that truly.  I have many mounts now, as I have been around the world… a little… I had a leopard done and it’s not even close to what you have done for me on the mountain lion.  The leopard looks like I did it (which is not good)!!!  It was done by one of of the “top” places in South Africa, so don’t believe what you read… as you know… not that I had many choices to go over there, and it was no cheaper by any means.  I hope you post this to let everyone know.  There is a difference, ask me, I will let you know…. not that it was a bad job but!

Anyway, just want to thank you again very much for a great job!
