"Glen! This is Becky Brackett. I forgot to thank you and your wife for the tickets you guys left at the front for me at the Medford Sportsman Show. Thank you! I'm so completely overwhelmed and in awe of the fish you reconstructed from just a picture... I definitely want to order one. How much of a deposit do you need? Can't wait to have my own fish mounted in my house! Your work is amazing."

Glen Thill is the owner/operator of Taxidermy Plus. In the event of some spare time, he enjoys the outdoors with his wife Liz, 'fish slayer' Brown, who continues to show him how its done on the lakes, rivers and oceans. Glens knowledge of taxidermy began 18 years ago by attending Missoula Valley School of Taxidermy in Thompson Falls, Montana. After graduating he stayed on and apprenticed with Tim Woods which led to entering in taxidermy competitions in Montana, Idaho, and Oregon winning several awards. This proved invaluable in gaining better knowledge and creating the 'WOW' factor in the art of taxidermy.
