Our Mission

To continue to be the world leader in wildlife taxidermy and restoration by constantly evolving; using the latest products and cutting edge techniques in everything we do.


About

Are you an avid hunter or fishermen? Why not turn your kill or catch into an amazing display that you can show off to friends and family. Let Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy preserve the memory of your safari or outdoor excursion with a cherished shoulder mount, rug, half or full mount. 

We use the latest taxidermy tools, techniques and materials to create deer mounts, turkey wall mounts, grizzly bear rugs and other pieces that are artistic, detailed and lifelike. Along with our designer skills, we have a strong knowledge of wildlife and their natural habitat. With this knowledge, we can create a custom base or scene that tells a story about the animal and showcases its realism. 

What to Expect 

What can you expect when working with Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy? Our body of work has earned us worldwide recognition as taxidermy artists and restorers. We have many years of experience and have worked with hundreds of wildlife species from various regions of the world. 

The cost for our services will vary based upon your project. For example, a full mount will cost substantially more than shoulder mount. There are also ways in which you can customize your mount which will add to the cost. However, we are customer service oriented and thus strive to offer top quality service at affordable prices. 

Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy is USDA approved to perform a variety of taxidermy services. Additionally, it possible for us to work with trophies from many areas of the world including Asia and Africa.  So if you go on a hunting trip overseas and want to bring your trophy home, don’t fret. Give us a call and let us help you to expedite the process. For this reason, we pride ourselves in building lasting relationships with our clientele.

Refreshing and Restoring 

Over the years, mounts can become discolored, cracked or unstable. Let us make them look like a fresh kill again with our cleaning and restoration processes. Along with refreshing, we will also secure all parts, repair scratches and mend breaks to help maintain its beauty.  We are capable of cleaning one mount or an entire collection. 

Our Commitment

We are committed to respecting and treating your trophy with the utmost care. Located in the Kootenai Valley of Montana, we are Montana Taxidermists but have clients over the Midwest and other parts of the world. Once complete, we will ship your mount to you anywhere worldwide. 

Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy is also committed to the growth and development of the taxidermy profession. Thus we work with future taxidermists and leaders in the field by offering workshops and both entry-level and advanced classes.

Clients

Along with personal clients, we have worked with numerous commercial entities including museums, hunting tour companies, fur dressers and sporting outfitters like Cabela’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Bass Pro Shops. We also have several collaborations that keep us successful and active with hunters and fishermen. Some of these affiliations include Eagle River Expediting, Hawk Mountain Air, SCI First For Hunters and the Montana Official State Travel Site. We are also the official sponsors of the Eastmans’ Deer Tour. 

Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy desires to make the world a better place. Thus, we are involved in several philanthropic efforts to help our veterans and improve the environment. We donate funds and work with a number of important non-profit agencies such as the National Rifle Association (NRA), Wounded Warriors Project and Kootenai Highland Gathering.

Like every other hunter, I work very hard for my trophies... too hard to have a poor job done on the taxidermy. That’s why I trust Wildlife Recapture with all of my work. Wildlife Recapture has been doing all of our taxidermy work here at Eastman’s for years. I wouldn’t even consider sending one of my animals anywhere else. Top quality work, a fair price and a quicker turn around? Need I say more?

What We've Achieved

  • Worldwide recognition in taxidermy

  • Approved by the USDA to perform taxidermy on:

    • Hunted trophies

    • Mount trophies

    • Store and/or process restricted* materials

    • Display restricted* materials

    • Irradiate restricted* materials

(* A restricted material is a product from a country of disease concern to the USDA.) 

  • Licensed African and Asian Receiving Agent

  • Ability to ship world wide

    • When hunters go outside of the United States to hunt, they need what is called a broker to get their trophies back into the States. The broker can help get the paper work done right and through customs, as it can get complicated and stressful. We use Hunter International Brokerage Services, Inc. (www.hunter-international.net) and Coppersmith (www.coppersmith.com).

  • Official Sponsor of the Eastmans' Deer Tour
