A Word About Pricing

Price shopping is always a smart idea. But, it should not take top-priority when it comes to finding the best taxidermy expert. Keep in mind that you are purchasing someone's talents to recreate your trophy into a dynamic piece of wildlife art. It is important that you preview and study a taxidermist's prior work - view online portfolios if possible and be sure to visit the shop's actual showroom. In the end, price should only be one factor in your decision.


Wood Work

As a professional taxidermist we offer custom wood working, and have the ability to create any type of cabinetry. From simple frames to fully functional cabinets and dioramas, we can take your mount from lifeless to lifelike, complete with its own enclosed wildlife setting. We also offer on-site trophy installation. Contact us to learn more or to schedule a visit to view our showroom.


Turn Around Time

At Great Bear Taxidermy we always offer a timely 6-10 month completion time.
