Kelly Schafer owner of Exploding Pill Taxidermy has spent most of his life enjoying the outdoors and hunting. Kelly decided to do taxidermy because he got tired of waiting (up to 2 years) to get his mounts back. He also felt unsatisfied by the quality of work at times. Kelly wanted to start is own taxidermy shop, but he wanted to do it differently than your normal taxidermy business. Kelly wanted to produce high quality mounts and have a turn around time of under a year. Quality not Quantity.
