Located in Lima, Ohio which is west-central Ohio. We cater to clients from all around Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and other states. Part of our service is receiving and shipping from and to any state in the continental USA, Africa, New Zealand, Canada, and Mexico.

Services Provided:

High quality taxidermy, tanning of hides, as well as skull cleaning. Our shop is skilled in every aspect of taxidermy from fish to large game to the tiniest birds. We have mounted hummingbirds for the local park , African lions, mountain lions, several species of rare sheep, most of the native ducks and upland birds as well as bears , hogs and the highly sought after Whitetailed Deer. A visit to our website will convince you we are well suited for any specimen you care to have mounted. We also provide tags and paperwork for importing game from overseas. Please contact us before going to Africa or other locations out of country to hunt.

Church attending:

My wife Sherri and I attend Bluelick Bible church where we are both members. My wife is active in 2’s and 3’s and visitation. I tend to the sound equipment for the Sunday services and help cook for church gatherings. Bluelick is a pretty conservative independent church with the main thrust on evangelizing and Missionary support and work.

Owner information:

James McNamara. McNamara’s Taxidermy was started back in the late seventies. I have been engaged in Taxidermy as full-time employment for several years now.

Mission statement / vision:

The goal of McNamara’s Taxidermy is to provide the highest quality taxidermy possible to all our clients. I try to keep in mind that I work first for God and second for the client. I hope God finds my work ethic and quality approvable. It is truly a privilege to work on such a variety of His creation and try to capture the lifelike features of each one. We cater to many families throughout the area and encourage children and parents to both enjoy the Creation and the Creator. I often get the privilege of mounting a child's first animal or fish and enjoy the look on their faces when they pick up the finished work.

Jim has done quite a bit of work for me and is an outstanding taxidermist. Jim’s bird mounts are better then any I’ve seen anywhere! He is a close friend and hunting buddy, who is a man of God.
