Bud Jones Taxidermy Shop

Cool little stop. They were very friendly, and directed us to another place to visit -- the West Georgia Museum.

Bud Jones Taxidermy Shop

Mr. and Mrs. Jones will be glad to show you around and answer any questions. On top of that, they recommended a few other places to stop. Our kids loved it and even left with some free animal skins.

Great Taxidermy Shop

There is a great taxidermy shop called Bud Jones Taxidermy Shop. The kindergartens here always go on field trips there. The kids love it.

They've stuffed a full size elephant, and they're probably the only taxidermy shop in Georgia that also makes replicas of dinosaurs.
