Preserving your trophies and your memories
Russ McAllister is a 4th generation Montanan who grew up on a cattle ranch near Ronan, Montana. During his teen and early adult years he enjoyed big game hunting with his dad and admired the beauty of the animals that he harvested. This led to an interest in taxidermy. In 1999, he started Beetles Unlimited and Taxidermy working from his home in Kila, Montana. In 2007, Bruce Babcock, owner of The Montana Taxidermist, approached Russ about coming to work for him part time. Bruce and his wife Trisha had started the business in 1972 and were looking for someone who would possibly be interested in taking over the business one day. They had a great working relationship for the next 9 years with Bruce sharing the knowledge that he had gained through his years of experience with Russ. In the fall of 2016, when Bruce lost his battle with cancer, Russ merged his business with the Montana Taxidermist business and is now committed to continue the tradition of top quality wildlife taxidermy. He is now located at 1167 Helena Flats Road, Kalispell, Montana.
