About Us

Our Vision

Trophy Buck Inc. strives to provide hunters of South Texas with an unforgettable experience by providing them with high quality products and a level of customer service that cannot be matched anywhere else in the industry. 

 

It is our goal to greet every customer that walks through our door with a smile and handshake and send them home with an experience that will leave them coming back time and again.

Our Story

The business started in 1985 as Eddie’s Taxidermy and has been owned/operated by Terry & Ann Jahns since then. For 30 years, Eddie’s Taxidermy was affiliated with Eddie’s Game Processing. Terry and Ann worked hard with Eddie’s Game Processing ownership to grow both businesses by providing quality products with an exceptional level of customer service. Relying solely on our customers’ experiences to result in word of mouth marketing, Eddies Game Processing and Taxidermy grew from a small family owned business into a renowned facility for South Texas hunters to use for their meat processing and taxidermy needs.

In 2014, due to the growth of the taxidermy and a need for having a facility closer to brush country clientele, Terry and Ann made the tough decision to begin looking for a new location to expand their business as Trophy Buck Inc. After much prayer and thought on where they wanted to be located, the property in Lytle, Tx was purchased and plans began to build the new facility. Although some of the dynamics of the business would change, including the addition of meat processing to the taxidermy, the core values of the company will always remain the same, including the business being family owned and operated.

Terry & Ann Jahns

Owners

Terry & Ann are the founders and face of Trophy Buck. Their combined expertise includes over 30 years of taxidermy artistry, over 40 years in the meat processing industry, and over a decade in restaurant management. Their dedication, prayers, blood, sweat, and tears have laid the foundation for the success of the company and it’s their dreams that have made Trophy Buck a reality. 

 

For decades, Terry & Ann poured their hearts into building their taxidermy business in San Antonio and primarily servicing hill country hunters. Over time, it became evident that the opportunity to grow their business required a huge leap of faith in moving their business to open a new building in Lytle. 

 

While the move didn’t come without its share of risks and setbacks, Terry & Ann firmly believed that the reward would be greater over time. Since opening the new location in 2016, Trophy Buck has grown hand over fist year after year and is quickly becoming the premiere processing & taxidermy facility for South Texas hunters. Terry & Ann are grateful for every customer that walks through our door and will stop at nothing to provide each customer with an experience that will have them coming back time and again.
