The Art of Taxidermy

Much like any designer taxidermy is considered an art and requires an acute perception of nature to permit the hands to accurately duplicate the poses of life. Here at Skins and Scales Taxidermy all of our employees have many things in common.
The appreciation for the outdoors, hunting, and dedication to the trade.

It’s the modern day hunter that carries the tradition of the past.
Being commissioned to create a work of art on your trophy is our pleasure.

We are experienced in North American, African and Asian animals. Many of our trophies have come from Africa, New Zeeland, Asia, Europe, Canada, and the United States.
