This interview is a bit different. It’s an in person interview with a self-taught renowned taxidermist. With state, national, international and world championship awards Dave Polak has been a trusted authority for professional and artistic taxidermy services for over 25 years. He does quality work using the best materials.
Dave specializes in Custom African and life size mounts, specialty bird mounts, rugs, mammals, deer, birds, fish, shoulder mounts, pedestals with habitat and cabinet bases. With the amount of knowledge that Dave has acquired he also teaches others how to do the same.
We get into his taxidermy business where Dave provides great advice for those who want to get into the business but also shares some things to consider when you’re looking for a taxidermist for yourself.
Recently, he finished a cougar hunt but he also enjoys bear hunts. Most of these kinds of hunts require strength and endurance. And of course, lots of patience.
Sometimes you’re in the woods for days and other times you kill your prey a lot quicker than you think. Nonetheless, there’s a lot of hiking and waiting involved in the wild. Therefore, if this is something you’d like to add to your hunting repertoire then tune in.
