Cabelas Demonstrations

Artistic Visions Wildlife Studio was selected by Cabela’s to demonstrate the craftsmanship of Wildlife Artistry at their retail store in Hamburg, PA during the Spring and Summer of 2009. These 2 day seminars were a huge success with very large turnouts. Customers from all over the nation were on hand to ask questions about the industry or the actual craft of taxidermy. They were able to observe Aaron mount a Cape Buffalo pedestal, life-size Bear, shoulder mount Moose, shoulder mount Black Wildebeest and numerous Whitetail Deer.

Artistic Visions was chosen for this prestigious position because of our professionalism, quality and customer care in the Taxidermy Industry. It is a true honor for us to represent our artistry on one of the nation’s largest wildlife and hunting stages. It is the mission of Artistic Visions to promote professionalism as well as improve the quality that the taxidermy industry needs.

These guys are fantastic! They have been doing mounts for my grandson for years and everyone has been magnificent. I can’t say enough good things about them. For a top-quality mount, someone would be foolish to go anywhere else.
