Hello fellow sportsmen and sportswomen!
My name is Shawn Wahl and I am a native to Montana. The earliest memories I have of hunting was when
I was in a backpack with my father.
The outdoors have been a major impact on me. By the time I was 5 years old, I had already been on Moose,
Elk, Deer, Antelope, and bird hunting expeditions. By the time I was 12, I had been on more hunts and kills then most
people see in a lifetime. I was involved in and worked with my father, who was an outfitter in Montana for nine years.
In recent years, I have been with my family and friends on hunting expeditions of our own. I have traveled
to several different states and have had the experience of seeing all different wildlife that nature has to offer. My
experiences are my inspiration to what led me to the career of taxidermy.
I have been married to my wife for 14 years and sometimes I feel I created a monster. She is also a
native to Montana and grew up in a rich hunting area. We have a love for the sport and the outdoors and hope to encourage
our children to have also.
We have found that the best investment we have made is to go to a school and learn how to do a commercial
tan right here in the building. We have built all of our equipment by hand and have had several resourceful family members
contribute to this. We are going into our seventh hunting season of being in Business in Broadus and enjoying every minute
of it working side by side each other. We owe a special thanks to our customers which by the way are repeat customers
every year for our success. Without those special people who put their trust in our talent we would not be where we
are today. With the success that we have had we are proud to announce that we are adding and additional 40x60 taxidermy
work area to our already established business. When we started this business it was a dream and reality has definately
set in and we are ready to go with it. We encourage anyone who has a dream of any kind to never give up that dream.
It might take 7 days a week 12 hour a day and you have to have the drive to do so but it could be reality for you as well.
