Owner description: Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy offers high quality taxidermy on all types of animals. Our work includes everything from turkey wall mounts to grizzly bear rugs. We will take your prize trophy and turn it into a display that you will treasure for many years to come. Also known for our cleaning and restoration services, we can make an old mount look like new again. Approved by the USDA, we go to great lengths to be safe and professional in all of our transactions. Having a positive reputation worldwide, we will also ship your mount anywhere worldwide. Located in Northwest Montana, we welcome tourists to stop by and experience our large animal display. We also offer taxidermy workshops and classes for both the beginning or experienced taxidermist.

I've never met an owner of a business who is more rude to the customers. When we walked in the front entrance, Mel the owner looked at us like we were aliens. Kind of had that, what the heck are YOU doing here look on his face. We did get to see some cool mounts shown to us by the nice co owner Kevin. Grizzly, cougar, wolf, bobcat, mountain sheep, mountain goat, turkey, pheasant, deer, elk, rainbow trout longer than your arm. This place does great work on the animal carcasses. When you stop to look at the awesome taxidermy, make sure you ask for the nice guy Kevin and avoid the rude owner Mel.

While not a tourist destination, they DO a very good job of creating trophies from many types of fish and animals.

Traveling through this small town in Montana, and we happened upon Wildlife Recapture Taxidermy after talking with a local. They were very friendly when we stopped in and even gave us a tour of their facility and of all of their fantastic wildlife displays. They had all sorts of animals such as elk, moose, grizzly bears, black bears, mountain lions, African lions, and many more that we have never even seen. We spent over an hour their looking around and even picked up a few souvenir t-shirts. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling through Northwest Montana. My kids still talk about it and I know the next time we head that way, we will stop by and check what new wildlife displays they have.
