Habitat is our forté

With experience building natural history museum dioramas nationwide, Echo Taxidermy can recreate any environment from Alaska to Zambia.  No matter what the scale, from pedestal mounts to life-size installations, ask how diorama elements can be incorporated to add depth, texture, & interest to your mounts.

Echo Taxidermy is pleased to provide custom trophy room services, from consultation to fabrication.  Contact us to design your dreams.

ECHO TAXIDERMY IS PLEASED TO WORK ON ALL YOUR MOUNTS–WHETHER LARGE OR SMALL–WITH THE SAME DEDICATION TO DETAIL, QUALITY, & EXPRESSION.

With a background in fine arts & sculpture, Echo strives to be the most unique taxidermy studio you'll ever work with. All in-house work taxidermy & diorama work is done by J.R. Rymut, with larger collaborations calling upon a team of muralists, cabinet makers, wood- & metal-workers, & additional talent to make unforgettable displays. We leave the hunting to the hunters, & hope you'll trust the artists in our craft of preserving your experience.

We accept all legal mammals, birds, fish, & reptiles. We strive to emphasize realism & natural behaviors. Repairs & antique restorations gladly accepted. Some in-house tanning services are available. Your imagination is the limit.

J.R. Rymut’s interest in taxidermy was borne of a love of natural history museums & a deep reverence for animals

 

J.R. received a fine art degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, after which they studied taxidermy & tanning in Montana. They moved to Nevada to work in one of the most esteemed taxidermy studios in the country, where they were thrilled to collaborate on the largest & most eye-catching installations on display at the Safari Club International convention.

J.R. enthusiastically took their dream job as a museum diorama fabricator, working in Washington, Arizona, & Missouri. They feel honored to have worked with a skilled team of craftspeople building exhibits for natural history museums, aquariums, scientific institutions, & interpretive centers nationwide.

However, having camped in Joseph Oregon years prior, J.R. couldn’t shake the desire to move to Wallowa County. After years of daydreaming, they took the leap. They couldn’t be happier to be a part of this rural community, & to be your local taxidermist.

Their favorite animal is the pronghorn antelope, which they love to remind everyone, is not in fact an antelope.
