Thank you for considering Back Country Taxidermy for your taxidermy needs.  


    I’ve had a passion for wildlife since I was a child, drawing and sculpting animals with an eye towards realism. As a teenager I was introduced to hunting and it also soon became a passion.  It didn’t take long for me to see the connection between recreating animals in pencil or clay and recreating them with the tools of a taxidermist.

I completed a course of study at Missoula Valley School of Taxidermy, and have been combining the two ever since.


    I have experience with North American big game, small game, birds, and fish. I will gladly take on the challenge of other animals as well.  My goal is to provide high quality work with quick turn around.  I look forward to visiting with you about your next project!
