Growing up as an outdoors man being involved in hunting, fishing, and the wilderness, taxidermy intrigued me at a very young age.

 

Taking my interest in taxidermy in hand I began attending the North Western School of Taxidermy where I learned from the old age correspondence lessons that the North Western School of Taxidermy had to offer.

 

From this point forward taxidermy soon became my passionate hobby, as a hobbyist taxidermist I started attending the State Taxidermy Competition Expo.

 

The State Taxidermy Competition Expo truly opened my eyes to today's highest level of standards put forth in taxidermy.

These yearly state, national, and world taxidermy shows and competitions have became my best learning and building tool.

 

Having the ability to see the best and learn from the best, taking in mind all suggestions they had given me to better my self in my trade. Also getting to have my work critiqued and judged on has helped me build from my weakness' and better develop my skill level in taxidermy.

 

Being referred to as a Master Taxidermist does not come easy, attending 20 year's of these competitions was how I became a Master Taxidermist.

 

With over 20 years experience in the taxidermy trade, it truly show in the quality of my workmanship.
