Shawn: I am writing not only to reiterate how pleased I am with your work, but also to pass along all of the compliments I have been getting since my bear went on display last fall. With my brown bear being so prominently displayed in a public place, I am always hearing from friends, family, and even strangers, how wonderful my trophy is, and how well you captured its magnificence. Given my love for hunting and the outdoors, I have always admired the art of taxidermy. With all of my traveling for work and pleasure, I get the chance to compare your work against that which is displayed in museums, airports, and businesses all over the country. The more I see and compare, the more pleased I am. It has also been very satisfying to admire and show off my trophy so soon after the hunt. Your ability to handle such a major project, with excellent results, in a timely fashion sets you well above the norm for your industry.

Shawn named his business wrong. It should be Awesome Taxidermy, because that’s what his taxidermy work is… ‘Awesome.’
Rob Kidd, Great Falls, MT
Congratulations on the job well done. The buffalo look great. I am especially pleased with the pose, very lifelike. As I suspected, you were the right taxidermist for this job.

Taxidermy with excellent detail and quality. Shawn Dawson with Timberland Taxidermy brings your fondest memories to life.

I am active duty military and have been stationed in several places throughout the United States. I have also had taxidermy work done in some of those same places and it goes without saying that some taxidermists are good and some not so good. Shawn is without a doubt one of the best! I have had three mounts of various species done by Timberland Taxidermy and currently working on a fourth. Not only does he do incredible work, he always puts forth the extra effort to give his work the most realistic appearances. Whether he is detailing a scenic background or producing that perfect angle to show off your trophy… Shawn provides a personal touch!

Shawn has designed numerous wildlife mounts for me, including a custom Bighorn Ram pedestal of which I am very proud. I am impressed by his creative talent and have found his service to be friendly and prompt. I highly recommend Timberland Taxidermy for the once in a lifetime trophy mount, or for the coyote pelt to be displayed on the bookcase.
