Where can I find taxidermy supplies in Canada.  I know of 3 places in Alberta...

AAA Taxidermy
Halford Hides (just tanning stuff mostly)
Select Taxidermy

are there any more?  I'm just trying to reduce shipping costs and wait times @ the border. 

Thanks!

Hi,

Yup, shipping cost are terrible lately when it cross the border, they really nail you big time  >:(.

There is also:

Knaptonstudios.com in Ontario (I ordered from them, no problem and good service)
and also bmsports.com in Quebec. (don't know them)

Not many here compared to our friends accross the border.

Good luck

And some of us who are just starting out don't know these things.  And just so you know search terms "Canada / Canadian Taxidermy Supply" didn't turn up a whole either.

Freespirit, do you mean Edmundston, New Brunswick Canada??? If so, and even though I live in Maine USA, that would be very close to me compaired to any other US taxidermy supply company. Hmmmm, if this Edmundston is the New Brunswick one, then I guess I need to tone up on my old Acadian French and pay my Canadian cousins a little visit who live near there, and maybe do a little shopping..? How much is the duty tax these days and how much is the difference between the US dollar and the Canadian???

Thanks for the help Freespirit!  I was aware of Walker & Dobson's work but not of the other 2. What's the names of the 3rd in Moose Jaw?  Interesting site btw, and who's the 4th one that you didn't mention? (Off topic, but hey it's my thread ;) )

So to sum up, this is what we have so far...


Now I realize that a lot of these are listed on the suppliers links page, but all of the suppliers are intermingled.  Normally not a problem but given Canada Customs & Revenue Agency's occasional delays and some suppliers insistence on using FedEx & UPS (or necessity in some cases) I thought it would be good to identify some some suppliers on the north side of the border.
