Marvin Guntzviller’s love of the out of doors and wildlife led him to found Guntviller’s Taxidermy in southeastern Michigan. He passed this love on to his son, Voss, and taught him the art of taxidermy. The family moved the shop to Northern Michigan in the 1970's. Voss has continually expanded his skills learning the newest methods of creating the highest quality wildlife mounts that will last a lifetime. Voss is a member of the National Taxidermy Association and Michigan Taxidermy Association and Guntzviller's is licensed by State of Michigan and the U.S Fisheries and Wildlife Service.
