The Dixieland Story


Started in the 1920's, Dixieland Taxidermy Supply company is one of the oldest Taxidermy Supply Companies in the industry. In 1984 Willis Huston entered the story when he purchased Dixieland from George Kenneth Jones of Fairfield, Alabama

Through the following years Dixieland grew with the addition of various product lines:

  • 1992: Spectrum Clay & Ceramics
  • 1994: Clearfield Taxidermy Supply Company
  • 1995: Harper Lee Taxidermy Supply Company
  • 1996 Happy Paulson Molds
  • 1996 Capps Fleshing Machine
  • 2000 Chandler's Taxidermy Supply Company

  • Each of these additions brought its own vitality and unique product offerings to Dixieland Taxidermy Supply Company, as did Willis Huston, himself. Over the years Willis has been Dixieland Taxidermy Supply to most folks. Whether on the telephone, or at a convention, Willis was always there to answer a question or to visit with you. But, as it will for all of us, time and health concerns finally convinced Willis to allow others a chance while he took a shot at 'partial' retirement.

    And so, in 2006, Daryl Jonson bought the business and became part of the Dixieland Taxidermy Supply Company story when he brought Dixieland home to East Tennessee with him. When you call to order now, you will probably talk to Rachel. She manages the Front Office and the Shipping Area now. Its a huge responsibility, and she is awesome.


Because we value your business Dixieland will never charge a mark up for shipping and only charges for actual shipping instead of estimating your costs. After placing your order you will see a second charge for the ACTUAL shipping of you items, no hidden fees!
