Welcome to Trophy            Taxidermy 

If we aren't mounting your trophy,

you must have missed!

 

Well with The show season and Turkey season behind us now the year seems to be flying by. Now this is the season for spring bear hunting. Bear hunting is probable the most exciting hunting for me. I know hunting in general is great but when you are trying to fill a bear tag nohting can keep you on your toes like a bear. First you are hunting a critter that can potentually kill you and is as smart as they come. Their eye sight some say is not all that good but what they dont see they can sure smell. One of the most important things to remember when hunting bear is their nose. If they smell you the hunt is over before it starts. I have had the pleasure of hunting Black bear in Norther BC, Alberta and Colorado. most of the hunts were very successful. I did take the biggest bear in BC with Inzana Outfitters. This hunt was a spot and stalk hunt that was in beautiful country. We watched many bears on this hunt feeding on clover and grasses in the clear cuts and trails. we had the pleasure of watching a sow Grizzly with her cubs feeding around on a grassy hill side also that made the hunt more exciting. I eventually shot a Nice Black bear that squared at 7.3" a fine bear he was. He had a nice skull that measured a little over 20". A real trophy. I have taken 5 Black bear with one being a chocolate, he is my favorite. I am looking forward to hunting black bear again and would love to have a blonde and Cinnamon color. That would give me most of the color faze black bear.                                                                                                                                    

I had the oppertunity to hunt Brown bear in Alaska this past April, man what a hunt that was. Spending 10 days in a tent in brown bear country was the bomb. I did not shoot a big ole bear but seen several. Most were sow with cubs and a few small boar bear. I did set up on a huge bear laying just above its den within one hundred yards and watched it for several hours trying to decide if it was a sow or boar. After quite a while of glassing and intense watching we being  my guide finally seen the two little football size cubs pop out from under the big sow's belly. it was a great disppintment but was rewarding to see such a sight. The hunt was everything I could hope for, lots of glassing, rain, hail, snow, along with wind made it challeging but hey it's Alaska. I will be headed back there in 2018 for another go.If you are intrested in hunting Brown bear in Alaska the season's for spring bear are even years and for fall is odd years so keep that in mind.                                                                                                                                        

Until next time good hunting

Welcome to Trophy Taxidermy. Thank you for stopping in. I encourage you to take a look around the site and stay for a while. I have been a wildlife artist for many years. It all started back in the later years of high school. I am an avid hunter and fisherman and love to mount my own trophies. I am proud to say I am self taught and learned most everything I know on trial and error. Oh I have talked with some of the best artist in the world asking about different and better ways to do some things, however, with that being said I have built a very respected business in the taxidermy world.

I attend and have displayed at various shows and conventions. I am a proud life member of the Dallas Safari Club and Safari Club International, along with several other associations. I have and still do work for some of the board of directers of some of these clubs. I have been blessed to make friends and clients with outfitters all over the world.  I am very fortunante to be where I am today, thanks to all of my clients and friends. 

If you get the chance to stop in my shop please do so.  You will not see ribbons hanging on the walls, but you will see a great display of beautifully mounted trophies from different parts of the world. Everything from bears to giraffe. I can take you to several trophy rooms that I have helped build. These trophy rooms display mountains to other habitats that suit the need to properly show off your trophies.

Today's taxidermy materials have come a long way compared to when I started years ago. I use the best that money can buy, the best tannery's and I make sure when your trophy leaves my shop it will be a treasure for you to enjoy for a life time.

I will be glad to help you in anyway, please give me a call!

 

Thanks for stopping by!
