The Grey Ghost and Black Death; Africa has always captivated a hunter’s imagination. Robert Ruark once said “A Cape Buffalo looks at you as if you owe him money” at Artistic Visions Wildlife Studio we can recreate that same chilling stare.
Aaron Simser is a Marine Corps veteran who created Artistic Visions Wildlife in 2005 and it has grown to become known as one of the leading world class taxidermy studios in the industry.
Our brand new luxurious showroom contains many examples of our award-winning quality. From North American to African, lifesize to shoulder mounts, we have numerous pieces of world class taxidermy to satisfy any clients’ needs.
After the hunt of a lifetime, we only trust our trophies to Artistic Visions Wildlife. As noted in other reviews, Aaron’s network allows for seamless shipment of your trophies from point A to their final destination – which removes all the stress and worry. But more importantly, it is his vision, creativity, and commitment to the authentic representation of the living animals that truly sets his work apart.
They are true artists — bringing “life” to your memories.
Aaron and his team are exceptional. Whether is setting up and managing the complex logistics of an international hunt or recreating a Lifesize mount there’s nobody better in the business. On a recent trip, I was well prepared, with gear lists, travel documents, and all the nuances of traveling abroad to hunt brown bears. What would have been stressful trying to manage personally, was all taken care of and ran seamlessly….flights, hotels, interpreters, gun visas, importing hides…you name it….taken care of!
Back stateside, the quality and attention to detail on the taxidermy were incredible. It really brought the memory to life while adding customizations that make it unique to the animal and trip.
Highly recommend! Professional, honest, fair pricing, you can’t go wrong!
I was given a nice-sized buck head by a friend. She found it in her woods and knew I would appreciate it. I collect skulls as I come across them in the woods. I decided to stop in Artistic Visions. They are a great group of people. Friendly and knowledgeable in the business. I left my new skull to be cleaned. When it came back I couldn’t be happier. They did an amazing job. I couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend this company.
Without a doubt best taxidermist around. Aaron is not only a great guy but the quality of work is second to none. I won’t use anyone but him for any mounts I get in the future.
