Welcome to the Finish the Hunt Family!


We believe that taxidermy is an art form that captures the spirit and memories of some of the best experiences of our lives. It honors our shared heritage of providing for our families, and living off of the land with the patience and skills that we hone and pass from generation to generation. We work to recreate the natural strength and beauty of the animals that are harvested by our clients, so that the mount helps to preserve the memories and aids in retelling the stories of the hunt.

I am indebted to those who helped me get started in the business and who took the time and energy to pass on the art of preserving the hunt. Advanced Taxidermy Training Center of NW Montana, Gene Swanson of Nature’s Beauty Taxidermy in New Plymouth ID, and Craig Lewis of Lewis Wildlife Art in Burbank WA, along with the support of my family (especially my dad and husband!) all contributed to my formation as a taxidermist, and my desire to deliver the very best product and service to my clients. Finish the Hunt is truly a family endeavor, and clients are thought of as part of our extended family.
