About Us


Hip-O Taxidermy is owned and operated by Robert Stockwell.

Robert Stockwell is a state and national award winning taxidermist with 31 years of experience in the taxidermy industry.  This is the only NTA certified taxidermy studio in West TX.

Our studio (at 2801 A E. Hwy. 90 between Big Bend Saddlery and Highland Concrete on the East side of Alpine) is 3250 square feet, giving us the room to take on large projects, We also have a large walk-in freezer and cooler.  Stop in for a visit and look at our  show room, we've got some excellent mounts on display for your viewing pleasure.

Custom mounts of your choice available upon request. Call for availability. Some are in stock, others will be custom mounted to your specifications with the normal turnaround time, usually 8 to 10 months. We can do rush orders of 3 months for an additional 50%. All mounts require a 50% deposit and final payment before shipping.

All capes and life size hides are professionally tanned in Kerrville TX. They're a small family tannery that offer exceptional quality for taxidermy mounts. Our dry tanned items such as rugs, flat hides and hanging hides are tanned at the Wildilfe Gallery in Mountain Home, Texas

Custom forms for Desert Mule Deer, Pronghorn and Aoudad are made to our specifications by Jetz Taxidermy Supply in Kerrville.

We are looking forward with heiping you book your next dream trophy hunt and meeting you in person.

Happy Hunting,
