Welcome to Howell Taxidermy. My name is Laura Howell, NC Licensed Taxidermist.  We are located in Waynesville, NC in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains.


I have been practicing taxidermy for over 25 years.  I received a degree in Fish & Wildlife Management from Haywood Community College in 1985. My family and I are avid hunters and love the outdoors.  I spend countless hours in the woods observing wildlife in their natural habitat.


I take pride in making your memories last a lifetime whether it be a child's first deer or the trophy of a lifetime.  From a European skull mount to a life-size bear I will provide you with quality work with reasonable prices and turn around time.


I hope you will allow me to bring your trophy to life!  HAPPY HUNTING!!!
