My name is Steve Beckley, owner of and artist at Wilderness Taxidermy Studio - originally located in Mackenzie, British Columbia, Canada. Taxidermy began as a hobby over 20 years ago, now it has become my passion and something I love to share with others. In the fall of 2016, I opened my taxidermy shop in Merritt, BC.
My experience includes a 2-year course with world champion taxidermist Brian Dobson, which has allowed me to hone my skills in creating realistic mounts. I take exceptional pride in my attention to the accuracy of detail and ability to create a quality piece within a reasonable 6 to 12 months turnaround for most mounts. Additionally, In May 2018, I completed a competition course. It is always important to update skills and learn new techniques to provide customers with exceptional game head mounts.
*In the event of a more complicated piece may take longer to complete. Please contact me for more details.
2018 Successfully completed an advanced game head course with Shawn Dawson (Certified Judge), gaining skills for competition.
Completed taxidermy courses with Brian Dobson (world champion in game head category) and Glen Browning (world champion in birds category).
