Wild Woods Taxidermy Studio LLC was established in 2008, and is located at the intersection of Hwys 13 & 70 in Price County. It is one of the “gateways” to the Chequamegan-Nicolet Forest. We are conveniently located on Hwy 70, close to the historic Post Office, Price County Historical Society, and the Fifield Fire Department.
We are located amongst almost a million acres in national, state, and county forest land in the heart of bear country. Park Falls, just 5 miles north of us, is The Ruffed Grouse Capital of the World. There is an abundance of water arounds us. Price County has 174 lakes and 3 major rivers. Fifield is the home of the Smith Rapids covered bridge, the first covered bridge built in WI in over 100 years.
We are a full-service, custom, taxidermy studio that offers fish and replicas, birds and mammals, and we also work with African and exotic species.
“I have always had an intense interest in art. So much so, that art teachers had a difficult time keeping me busy. I was also born into a hunting family and raised with a father who took me hunting and fishing at a very young age. My love of art and the outdoors has only grown stronger throughout my life and evolved into a passion for wildlife artistry, which has gotten me where I’m am today.”
Travis lives in Park Falls with his wife, Charlotte, and their two dachshund “kids”. They enjoy kayaking and hiking with both of their schedules allow, and often travel to find scenic places to hike. On their honeymoon in Alaska, they hiked to the top of Mt. Travis loves being in the outdoors. He is an avid sportsman, with key emphasis on bow hunting.
Allan lives in Fifield with his wife, Cara. They moved to the area in 2007, after visiting the forest area and falling in love with it. He does woodworking and habitat work in mounts, accompanies Travis to shows, and does various running for the shop. Allan has hunted all his life, and loves to fish, hunt, and trap. With Travis, he was accomplished a long time dream of hunting a mountain lion. Both he and Travis successfully took cats in Idaho.
“Allan and I started searching for a new place to live in 2007. While out driving one day, we headed north up Hwy 13, and ended up in Fifield, and eventually out by the Covered Bridge. I instantly knew this is where I belonged. We often go for drives on the forest roads; the “tree tunnel” roads are my favorite. Our kids were born with a love of the outdoors and were raised with a respect for nature. Hunting is not only a past time for our family, but also a way of life."
Cara lives in Fifield with her husband, Allan. They also share their house with a Basset, Zuce, and Chihuahua, Zion. Also onboard are two cockatiels, Zee and Zulu. When not buried in paperwork…grandchildren, gardens and crocheting keep her happy.
