Dale Horton Picture
Back Country Taxidermy Studio is the life long journey of Dale Horton. He grew up in the rural surroundings of Kenosha County in Southeastern Wisconsin. Living on a farm most of his youthful years, hunting and fishing was second nature. Dale saw the beauty in the game he and his neighbor friends bagged as part of their hunting outings. The bright red eye of a rooster ring neck pheasant or the beautiful plumage on the head of a male wood duck. Dale saw taxidermy as a way to preserve that beauty for years to come. Horton got his start back when he was about 9 yrs old, he took a correspondence course from the Northwestern School of Taxidermy. He used to practice on pigeons that his brother shot for him. Once out of high school, Dale went to a technical college for taxidermy and then started in the business part-time. As his skills as a taxidermist grew so did word of the great work he did. Friends of friends were asking Dale to mount whitetail antlers or stuff that big large mouth bass. When the amount of work he was able to get, surpassed the amount of time he was able to devote to his taxidermy. Dale decided it was time for the doors of Back Country Taxidermy Studio to open full time. He is currently a member of the Wisconsin Taxidermists Association as well as the National Taxidermists Association. Back Country Taxidermy Studio is located in the lower level of the Paddock Lake Sporting Goods store on Highway 50 at the east end of town.
