about

Hi, I’m Jim Haveman. For over 40 years, I have worked as a wildlife biologist, conservationist, and consultant; and am now retired from a career with the federal government. Recreation for me has always involved the outdoors – hunting, fishing, hiking, and taxidermy. Those activities enjoyed with family and friends are my lifetime passion.

I’ve been doing custom taxidermy now for nearly 4 decades and am privileged to create mounts from around the world and throughout the state of Michigan. My work includes all mammals, birds, fish, and reptiles – partial or full mounts, as well as, replicas. You can expect attention to subtle detail, technical precision in the studio, and an artistic eye. Whether traditional or custom mounts, I promise you my best effort and affordable quality.

Over the years I’ve come to understand that my taxidermy is really about the preservation of moments and memories – the retelling of good times afield, great adventures, fine achievements, and the savoring of friendships shared. That truth inspires and differentiates my work. Is there a special memory or story I can preserve for you?

I look forward to meeting you and to the privilege of sharing my passion with you.

Jim Haveman
