Welcome to Wild Goose Chase Taxidermy Studio, LLC


 
Welcome to Wild Goose Chase Taxidermy Studio, LLC!

My name is Saige GriffisWest.  I am a Colorado native with a college degree in wildlife, and I am the owner and operator of Wild Goose Chase Taxidermy Studio.  I am an artist and a naturalist who is passionate about conservation and the restoration of our country's remaining wild places, and hunting can be a key aspect to both! 

At Wild Goose Chase Taxidermy Studio, I specialize in the creation of quality waterfowl and gamebird mounts, as well as custom fish reproductions, where an artistic approach and attention to detail are major aspects to each and every animal.  I provide taxidermy services by appointment along the Front Range of Colorado, but I welcome anyone who is willing to travel to my Front Range locations for drop off and pickup of their birds.  As an artist in taxidermy and other mediums, I take pride in my artwork and strive to preserve your mount in the most lifelike way possible.  Take a look at the gallery tab by clicking the link along the sidebar or on the dropdown menu (if using the mobile version) for photos of finished work.  I also run my own Etsy shop, where you can buy various finished taxidermy pieces that I complete when not working on customer's birds.  It can be accessed through this website via the sidebar or dropdown menu, or from the link below.  As mentioned above, I also provide custom fish reproductions/replicas, so be sure to visit that page too if you are interested in fins rather than feathers (see the sidebar or dropdown menu for a link to that).

I look forward to commemorating your hunt and appreciate the business each customer brings.

Thank you, Saige

Important Reminder: when a hunter drops off their bird for taxidermy, they MUST provide their hunting license number for that bird's identification tag.

Examples of who I can provide taxidermy services for:

  • Hunters
  • Hobby farmers (no pets, just barnyard poultry, ornamental quail and partridges, Guinea fowl, peacocks, and such)
  • Museums/nature Centers/scientific collections
  • Universities/colleges/scientists
  • Wild bird rescues/educational facilities/zoos

Note:  Although I typically only taxidermy waterfowl and gamebirds, non-gamebird species such as songbirds and birds of prey  can be taxidermied as well, provided the collector has a valid federal permit listed under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Typically, only places such as museums, zoos, wildlife rescues, and universities are granted these permits, and they are not available to the general public.  Always feel free to contact me with any questions, but please leave a message if I do not pick up the phone.  If you do not leave a message, I may not be able to call you back.  Thanks!
