Bruce Foster Taxidermy

Established on Maryland’s Eastern Shore in 1979, Bruce Foster Taxidermy Studio’s philosophy centers around the premise that my customers deserve and get the best I can offer. Pride in that service has been paramount for over three decades. My goals have and will always be simple…strive..for, and maintain a level of craftsmanship, realism and excellence that sets my work apart from others. Modern taxidermy and animal preparation has changed drastically from the time of the old school masters. Catalog suppliers of pre-sculpted forms have replaced the techniques of J. L. Clark, R. Rockwell, Louis Paul Jonas, W. T. Hornaday and Carl E. Akeley. Commercial taxidermy is often generic, and truly lacks the attitude and realism found in a custom mounted piece.

Bruce Foster Studio caters to the affluent sportsman who demands the highest quality taxidermy, only found in individual craftsmanship. I am not a production studio that slips a skin on a generic form as quickly as possible. Each piece is original and individually designed using the highest grade products and the best preservation methods available. The species best features, behavior and attitude are all blended and sculptured into an anatomically accurate finished taxidermy piece. An enormous amount of time and creative talent highlight the best features of your trophy. I tan nothing in house, and chose to use expert garment grade tanneries. My goal has always been to bring you the best in the


Bruce Foster Studio provides one on one customer care coupled with a professional service that caters to the desires and needs of my customers. You are the reason for my business, and the purpose of my work. From pre-hunt planning, document preparation and Import/Export, I am there to serve you. We plan your mount together, regardless of the species, and can custom make just about anything you could desire. Other than garment grade tanning and supplies, everything from woodwork to custom molding and casting is done in house. Unlike many, I make no claim to fame, nor boast of “Award Winning” recognition. It is my view, that the reward is yours….a hand crafted piece done with craftsmanship and pride. For over three decades, my experience has shown though and I will continue to place you first and deliver the quality that has become the foundation of my business.
