Naturally Wild Taxidermy was established in Alaska. After many successful years we relocated to our home state of New York. We are now located in the heart of the Adirondacks! We continue to serve all states, however proper documentation will be required to be shown prior to receiving work. Be sure to adhere to your state laws regarding fish and game. We look forward to creating a custom mount for you!
There's a story behind every trophy. No two stories are the same. You remember the weather, the smells, how your heart pounded when that animal stepped into range, the long haul back to civilization. When you tell your friends and family the tale of your fishing or hunting adventure you spare no detail; we won't either... Allow Naturally Wild Taxidermy to preserve that memory for a lifetime.
