Taxidermy in Montana
Concierge.com's insider take:
Montana decor begins and ends with one thing: taxidermy. From bearskin rugs to prairie-dog lamps, no home is complete without the company of at least one glassy-eyed beast. If you've vanquished an elk, a bison, or even just a trout, there are dozens of taxidermists throughout the state ready and waiting to mount your trophy. But for bragging without actually bagging, Dumont Taxidermy Studio in Libby stocks a rotating selection of ready-made deer, elk, moose, and bear products; call ahead for availability (406-293-6776; www.dumonttaxidermy.com). If you're just looking, the Valley County Pioneer Museum in Glasgow has an amazing if bizarre collection that includes two-headed calves and a buffalo mount made to honor FDR (www.valleycountymuseum.com). To meet all your antler needs, from coffee tables and drawer pulls to chandeliers, stop by Antler Art in Bozeman (406-587-5255; www.franklong.com).
