GWT is currently not taking any new projects for the 2019 season.
Thank you for your interest! Good hunting!

Hello, I am Renee Fish. I own Gone Wild Taxidermy located in Marne, Michigan, west of Grand Rapids. I have a bachelors degree in Natural Resources Management from Grand Valley State University. This degree has given me a wonderful background in understanding animals and their natural habitat thus, allowing me to recapture God’s creation in its truest form allowable to my ability. As an artist from before I could remember, I’ve always drawn pictures of what I loved most-animals. To be able to combine my love of animals and my artistic talent was what lead me to taxidermy-animals and art!!! But to own my own business, that was what I had always dreamed of doing. I opened Gone Wild Taxidermy with a quest to find a fulfilling career-not to do a hobby. After 2 ½ years of full-time apprentice work under a Master taxidermist of 30+ years, I started my own full-time shop in 2003 in an outbuilding at home and that is where the “magic” started and is made today. Little by little and year by year, I’ve seem to have made a name for myself and am now doing what I love and loving what I do. I see taxidermy as my passion, not just my job.

As a full-time taxidermist, I specialize in all fur bearing animals. While Whitetail deer shoulder mounts and various poses of Black Bear make up the majority of my work, I do not limit it to them. Please see my price list for the other animals. I have handled many species I could only imagine seeing in a zoo, magazine or picture book. To actually touch these amazing creatures, let alone make them “come alive”, has been a real blessing. My quest for perfection in my mounts is attributed to God’s perfection at their creation. I try very hard to reflect on His perfect design and with the spread of my name through friends, family and past customers being local, state wide and out of state, I feel I have been blessed with a wonderful talent and do my best to give back what God has given me.

I set no boundaries to my abilities on any project. I welcome any challenge and will tackle it with alacrity. You can count on me to complete your trophy with the utmost attention to detail (also called a woman’s touch???) and in a very timely manner. My turnaround time is usually 10 months or less. No one trophy is just a piece of work, but rather a masterpiece to finish with my greatest effort and ability, to show what the Creator was given us and to give you back a mount that recaptures the dream of that hunt. 

I use only the best materials available. I do not and will not sacrifice my quality for quantity. I use the best tannery in the business and stand behind my work 110%. Feel free to check out my testimony page and see what others say about Gone Wild Taxidermy. 

I support Whitetails Unlimited-Grand River Chapter, Inc., Safari Club International-West Michigan Bowhunters Chapter, and National Wild Turkey Federation. I am state licensed with the Michigan Dept. of Natural Resources. Feel free to contact me with any questions on mounts or preparation for future hunts in regards to hide preservation and transport.
