Over 90 years ago, while Paul H. Young was building a reputation for    custom made  bamboo Fly-rods, his brother-in-law, Al Hilde was forming a  reputation of his own at the Taxidermy shop on Grand River Avenue in Detroit. 

             After the business was moved to Clarkston, in 1971, Robert Taylor joined the staff at Hilde Taxidermy and over the years has continued to enhance the   quality of wildlife art Hilde is famous for.

In 2010, award winning wildlife artist Lisa Noelle joined the staff. Her  enthusiasm and  expertise has helped move the company to the forefront of  taxidermy technology.

Today, Hilde Wildlife Studio is known worldwide as an African Safari Specialist. Their artists’  efforts make it possible for the sportsman to share with those who come after, the beauty of God’s creations and delicate    balance of nature, through the preservation of  trophies they’ve so earnestly obtained.

Such award winning work is done for the benefit of all and is appreciated by many.
