James R. Benson

Master Taxidermist / Owner

Jim Benson grew up in East Grand Forks, MN and started doing taxidermy as a hobby when he was 14 years old.  Since then, his appreciation for wildlife and nature has kept him in business.  When he started Sportsman's Taxidermy Studio in 1979, he used the most up to date products and techniques available and combined them with special attention to detail.  He still holds those traits today.  He has made that combination of skill along with some improvements satisfy the most demanding clients.  Jim truly believes that your hard earned trophy deserves the best job possible, giving you a piece of wildlife art that you will truly be proud to display.





Jim enjoys hunting everything from Coyotes in the frigid North Dakota winter prairie, to stalking African game with either gun or bow.  He loves spending time on the nearby Red River in the summer catching Channel Catfish, and also visiting his hunting camp in Northern Minnesota for Whitetail Deer, Ducks, Geese, and Grouse.  Jim also enjoys spending days in the field with his seven year old Black Lab "Molly", and loves hunting all species of waterfowl and upland game with her.
