Welcome to Ruhs Wildlife Artistry Taxidermy Studio in NW Iowa!
My name is Mike Ruhs and I am the owner of the Ruhs Wildlife Artistry taxidermy studio in Spirit Lake, Iowa. I graduated from the Northwest Iowa School of Taxidermy. I am a state and federally licensed taxidermist. I do all aspects of taxidermy.
Whatever your trophy is, I will spend the time necessary to create a lifelike and one of a kind centerpiece for your trophy room. I treat each mount as my own, as my name goes along with every mount I do. Repeat customers are impossible to have if you can't please them with each and every mount you do for them.
Please take a moment to view my photo gallery of completed mounts. I hope you consider me for your next mount!
I have two drop-off locations by appointment. One in Spirit Lake, IA and the other in Sioux Rapids, IA. Please contact me before to be sure that I can meet you when you arrive.
50% Deposit on all mounts is required before work will be taken in. The deposit covers materials necessary to finish the mount for you. The remaining balance is due when the mount is finished.
7% IA sales tax is not included in prices listed. It is an additional expense.
