Bill’s Wildlife Studio was founded in 1958 by Bill Gouba Sr. and offers over 55 years of experience.  The company is now owned and operated by his son, Bill Gouba Jr., an award winning Master Taxidermist, who has won numerous state & national awards for his outstanding work.

We are a personal operation by design for quality workmanship.  We have had the same staff for the last 13 years, which enables us to give special attention to achieve the most life-like mounts and ensure your complete satisfaction. 

Our studio has created quality mounts for discerning sportsman throughout the country.  We customize your trophy mount to meet your personal desires and exceed expectations.  We can crate and ship your trophies, or have them personally delivered for setup. 

At Bill’s Wildlife Studio, whether it’s your first shoulder mount or a multi piece diorama, we bring out the unique characteristics of “your trophy” with customized poses and habitat bases that will compliment your home or trophy room.

We are a USDA certified quarantine facility, for any trophy requiring treatment.  We will take care of the hassles of shipping and receiving work, so our customers can just enjoy the hunt and the memories.

Your hunt represents a large financial investment, but also endless hours of research and planning.  We believe that your selection of taxidermist should involve the same amount of care.  While some people choose their taxidermist based on price, we hope you choose based on quality workmanship, as taxidermy is not just an expense–it’s a lifelong investment of the cherished memory of the hunt.

Wildlife artistry is much more than an acquired skill. It’s a God given talent….

My Best,

Bill Gouba Jr.
