My Story

Rocky Mountain Wildlife Studios is owned and operated by master taxidermist, Dean Hendrickson. Dean has been serving hunters, museums, game departments, and collectors since 1980.

Dean’s passion for his work is shown through every detail of the lifelike mounts he creates.

Dean’s passion for taxidermy stems from his other passion of chasing bears and lions throughout the west. Along with his beloved hounds he has been pursuing this passion for 34 years. He has mounted several hundred life-size lions and bears for museums, game departments, and hunters throughout North America. Dean has also been hunting and guiding in Alaska since 1996.
