I began my taxidermy career
in 1981 and have worked fulltime in this
since 1996. Even with all my experience I
continue to keep up with the latest and best
techniques in today's taxidermy industry by
attending many seminars and trainings.
I am a licensed taxidermist with a certification of
Professional Mammal Taxidermist from the
International Guild of Taxidermy. I have won
numerous awards from not only Wisconsin taxidermy
shows, but also national and world shows as well.
In addition have won 3 president's awards and
numerous 1st and 2nd place trophy awards from the
Safari Club International (SCI) award competitions.
I have a large studio with a 3,800 foot showroom
containing over 100 mounts on display, including
many life-size mounts with natural habitat bases.
In addition to my showroom I have 2 large work
rooms, a walk in freezer and cooler. Our complex
houses a second building for storing antlers and
African shipments of my client's trophies to be
mounted. Both the studio and storage building
includes a full security system to protect our
Most mounts, especially the life-size mounts, are
custom mounts designed to meet the client's
specifications and set on a base with natural
habitat of rock, wood or dirt. As part of a custom
mount I often need to re-sculpt each form to make it
not only fit the hide of the animal but also to
create a mount designed specifically for each
I am an avid bow hunter and have been fortunate
enough to have been able to hunt game throughout the
states and around the world. To name a few, I have
hunted lions and leopards in Africa, Muskox in the
Arctic and Red Stag in New Zealand. I consider my
hunts as a way of increasing my skills as a
taxidermist by observing wildlife in its natural
habitat as well as taking many photos and
measurements in the field for references. Through
these hunts I am experiencing first hand the details
of each animal species enabling me to achieve a
higher quality mount. As a hobby I have a whitetail
deer farm. I spend quite a bit of time outside with
my deer studying and learning their characteristics,
muscle placement etc. By doing this I achieve a
more realistic deer mount.
I am a life member and a Master Measurer of Safari
Club International. I have been on the board of
directors for the Northeast Wisconsin SCI Chapter
since 1997. I am a member of the WI Taxidermist
Association, Whitetails Unlimited and a lifetime
member of The One Shot Club.
My guarantee to you: I stand behind my work and will
repair at no cost to you any defect in my

fire or smoke damage (including cigarette smoke),
water, sun or humidity damage or other acts in which
I have no control over.
