Afield Taxidermy is owned and operated by Gary Ruotsala, who is a professional trained and licensed taxidermist for Fish, Small Mammals, Gameheads and Birds. I understand the concerns you may have with your specimen due to my experience with the time and effort that go into each trophy. Every fish/animal is unique and should stay that way when on the wall and I take that into account while I work. I do not use stencils because no two fish look alike. I invite you to try Afield for a great mount job that you can show off to your family and friends! A good mount is always a good conversation starter! Try Afield! You'll love the friendly service and the great looking mount! Contact me, Gary, today for more information, with questions, or just to chat about your latest successful outdoor trip!
