New Change-Out Heads!


At Matuska’s, the product development team has been working tirelessly this past year. Wildlife artist and sculptor, Cindi Christman, has combined her intimate knowledge of bears and her innate sculpting ability to produce for us the finest line of black bear products on the market. Cindi resides in Wisconsin and works with black bears on a daily basis and is extremely well versed in black bear anatomy, facial expressions and mannerisms. Change-out heads are the first priority with 8 heads in boar/sow, closed mouth configurations. Next, all 8 will be sculpted into closed mouth rug shells which will feature an ultra, mount-friendly neck and shoulder design… NEVER BEFORE SEEN! Look forward to this fall’s aggressive and passive mouth designs.


Matuska Taxidermy Supply Company will introduce the Sage Brush Seriesof mule deer slated to hit the supply shelves this fall. The initial offering will consist of a very attractive semi sneak offset pose. The above mule deer photo was mounted by Brian Olson, from Wisconsin, on an original Sage Brush Seriesprototype and is a sneak peak of what you can expect. As with all Matuska manikins, this line was created with the aid of tons of mulie measurements, fresh study casts, as well as customer input. Our Sage Brush Series will prove to be one of the larger lines of high definition mule deer manikins available. If you want a sampling of what you can expect, feel free to order a Sage Brush Serieschange out head and switch it out with your next mulie. Change-out heads are available in 7 1/4″ and 7 1/2″ nose to eye sizes.
