Welcome to Fortson’s Taxidermy and Studio, located in the Heart of Central Texas, just a few minutes from Waco, Texas. I’m Rob Fortson, owner/taxidermist of Fortson’s Taxidermy.
To me, taxidermy is more than just throwing tanned skin on a form and pushing it out the door. Taxidermy is art. Passion mixed with creativity and talent is the difference between average taxidermy and something you’ll be proud to show off for years to come. This is what you’ll find at Fortson’s Taxidermy.
I was born in Tanzania, Africa and raised in East Texas. I’m passionate about wildlife. I love to hunt and fish, so I know where you’re coming from when you show up at my shop. My goal is for you to be more than just happy with your mount. I want your business for life!
In June of 2018 we hired on Kirby King full-time. Kirby comes with 25 years of Taxidermy experience. He is a very accomplished taxidermist in all species but his specialty is birds. Kirby has competed on the National Level with his waterfowl and done very well. We also hired on Bryan Douglas full-time in August of 2018. Bryan has 6 years of experience in taxidermy and processing. He is also a very accomplished taxidermist competing in our State Competition.
All together we have over 40 years of experience. We can handle all North American species as well as African safaris.
We know that choosing a taxidermist and processor can be difficult. We will do our best to earn your business and your trust. Take a little time and look through our photo gallery. Or come by and visit with us in person. We always have lots of critters on the wall for you to see and we would love to get to know ya.
Thanks for visiting our website. We look forward to serving you.
Rob Fortson, Owner
