Safari Studios owner and taxidermist Jimmy Fontenot received a Master's Degree in Range & Wildlife Managment in 1987. He has pursued his passion for wildlife through the art of taxidermy.
Jimmy has traveled & hunted many countries to harvest & study animals in their natural environments. Safari Studios staff consists of award winning taxidermists, finish artisans & master habitat designers. Each staff member has extensive training & knowledge in their field of expertise.
We work in a modern secure 13,000 sq ft studio. Each taxidermist has his/her own work station allowing individual creativity. Our finish & habitat departments are separate spaces to give artists more work area & freedom to create dynamic works of art.
We understand the logistics of shipping trophies all over the country. Safari Studios uses FedEx, Southeastern Freight, & independent trophy haulers, plus we deliver in our own 36 ft enclosed custom trailer. Most projects take between 10-12 months to complete. Extensive, more detailed dioramas or wildlife scenes may take over 12 months.
