Michael has lived in Odell, Nebraska for most of his life and is a keen hunter as well as a skilled taxidermist. He started doing taxidermy in 2007, after a life-long fascination with the art. Michael trained at the Colorado Institute of Taxidermy Training and returned to Odell, NE, to start his own business, Still Life Taxidermy.
One quality that sets Michael and Still Life Taxidermy apart from the competition is the time that Michael will spend helping his customers to choose the pose or item that will capture their memories and display their trophies to perfection. Each piece is created with the same attention to detail until every last inch is perfect. This is why Still Life Taxidermy has been voted "Favorite Taxidermist in the County" for both 2014 and 2015.
