a love for the outdoors and hunting seasons being so short, I wanted to
find a way to keep myself involved with the outdoor lifestyle. I
started taxidermy at the young age of nine, spending summers with my aunt
and uncle who were both taxidermists. I saw how they loved to create
a piece of art that would would remind the hunter oh his trophy hunt forever.
a fulltime firefighter, I am afforded the opportunity to devote time to
a second passion. As a hunter, one thing I always hated about taxidermists
was waiting a year or more to receive my mount. I, as a taxidermist,
aim to have mounts back to their owners less than six months after I receive
it. Quality work is another one of the most important aspects of
taxidermy for me. After killing a trophy buck, I anticipated the
arrival of the mount and was disappointed at the quality of the work.
That was the moment I knew I would personally persue taxidermy. I
vowed to never create a product that I would not hang on my own wall.
To do so, I attend yearly taxidermy conventions to keep myself abreast
of the latest technologies and techniques to ensure the utmost quality
work I can produce.
