Shop Permanently Closed.

Dear Friends,When I opened the doors to Custom Birdworks & The Big Game Connection, LTD in August of 1988, it was a goal to provide my clients with the highest quality taxidermy work possible. Over the years my focus has been on growing the business into what has become Missoula’s premier taxidermy studio. Now, 35 years later, that goal has been reached and it is time to look forward to new adventures. I’m proud of the work we’ve done and none of it would have been possible without you, my clients, and friends.

September 1, 2023, the taxidermy shop will be closed so that we can finish up the work that you’ve left in our care. That’s a tough thing for me to say and I will miss you coming into the shop fresh from the field with your trophies and stories, but here we are.

Thank you for the trust you have placed in me and my staff over the past 35 years. It has been an honor and privilege of my life to know and serve you.

We’re here for any questions you might have during this transition.
