Taxi near Rochester?

Looking for a recommendation on a taxidermy shop within an hour drive of Rochester. I've been wanting to have a cape done. Wednesday's doe would be perfect since I shot it through the neck, and there won't be any holes in the cape. Figured I'd ask here before looking online.

I use Scott Samolis in Honeoye. I think he’s done 4 of mine.

Can’t help ,but I’m fortunate to have a cape done by the legendary Anthony Scorza , at his shop in E.R. In like the ‘90s .
 

He mounted Ling Ling the giant Panda that was given to the U.S. as a gift from  China back in the day , after he died , Tony was chosen to mount it for the Smithsonian .

 

My first buck was tanned by him.

I'm not all that Savvy on the different kinds of hide preservation. What I was looking for was for the hide to be clean and soft on the one side and the fur intact on the other side. Was hoping that a local taxidermist could either do the job or at least point me in the right direction if he could not.

If you can skin /flesh/salt the hide send it here .Will get you the best and softest tan in the states .Cost I believe is $75 for a deer hide to tan with hair on .

Just drop it off with Greg, he will get it done for you even if he needs to send it out.

I'd try this place in Holley, NY: http://www.buckshottannery.com/north-american

Most taxidermist send their soft tans out to be done. The biggest local tannery in the Central NY area (Sivko Tannery in Canisteo) closes there doors last fall. I have a contact if you need it for my local guy. You can PM me if interested...
