Could ‘Digital Taxidermy’ Be a Big Trend for Montana Hunters?
Let's face it. Just about every home in Montana has got a dead animal on the wall somewhere. If your house doesn't, then all you need to do is go to the nearest Montana bar to find a dead animal on display. In my many trips around the sun, I have seen many different types of taxidermy. Some good, some bad, some just flat-out bizarre.
For example, there is an artist in Helena who specializes in squirrel taxidermy. Bob McEachern created what is known as "Squirrel Warriors." Squirrels dressed up as samurai knights or WW2 dive bombers. You simply have to see it to believe it.
But, what if you wanted another way to display your trophy without the need to make room for another dead critter on the wall?
Digital taxidermy may be the new big thing for Montana hunters.
I have stood over a few of my larger big game harvests, and I thought to myself "I can only imagine the beautiful things this creature has seen." With such a deep respect for the animal, you almost wish you could spend a day as a part of the herd. How beautiful the sunrise must have been every day. It would make a beautiful picture.
Now, thanks to advancing technology, you can immortalize your trophy animal digitally.
According to the Digital Taxidermy website
