Mtn Lakes

In the summer in Montana, there is nothing better than hiking into the many Mtn lakes in the area. Its the best way to stay or get into shape, not just for the summer but for life.

Many will hike into the lakes like myself and mark it on to the GPS , sit down and eat lunch or a high energy snack , take some pictures with the one that you walked into it with and off you go, back to the trail head or up or down to the upper or lower lake in that chain you are on. The main rush for me anymore is the hike, the mental commitent, the physical  part of it  on walking uphill for hours and miles  a time in the summer heat.

Some do all the above and then will put toghter a pole and start to fish for the native cutthroat trout in the lakes. Most everyone that fishes will catch some of the trout, most will be under 12” in length and I would say about 90% of the fishermen will catch and release the fish. Some will catch the trout and start a small fire and cook them right there on a open fire and eat the high in protein meal for lunch. And then some will catch them and pack them out to eat at home but the only thing wrong with this is that that fish will start to soften up and to spoil on the long walk out in the sun , but some will be on horse back and should have the fish out of the bush and on ice within a hour or so.

If you do happen to connect on a large trout or a different type of trout like a golden trout or to just to have a memories of the trip with a friend or family memeber, then one will have to roughly measure the length and the width of the fish, release it back into the high mtn lake and once back into the commutiy, bring or call the measurements into a professional taxidermy firm like Capp’s Taxidermy Studio LLC and we will take great care into making that menery for you.

Capp’s Taxidermy Studio LLC only uses the best repo’s on the market today with fins that are flexible, bodies that have action in them and in no way look fake or plastic. They are the best ! And then i will professionally  paint the fish back to life with bottom coat of  laquer paints and a top coat of a high gloss enamel, all out of a airbrush

Just bring , call or email the measurements to us with a picture of it or just a description on the colors of the trout so I can paint it back to the same color of the fish that you released back into the lake and will hang on your wall or sit on the table for years to come and everytime you see that great repo done by Capp’s, you will think of that day you hiked miles into that high mtn lake and smile….Go have fun………………………..


The main part of life is being able to handle whatever comes your way . If it’s in work or on a adventure of a lifetime. One must be in good physical shape, in good health and maybe the most important is having a great mental commitment. I think if you are in so-so shape and in good health and have a great mental commitment then you will be able to do most of what you need to do. If you are hunting brown bear or sheep and the environment is less than friendly but you have a great mind set then you can over come the situations and the weather to harvest your game. I’m not saying that if you weigh 300 lbs and smoke 3 packs a day that if you have a good mind set that you will endure. No you must be physically fit ,be in good health and have the mind set for success. If you are going to apply for that special tag or to buy that hunt up north or a safari then you must start to apply your self to being in condition, both in mind and body.

It’s time to get in shape, if not for the hunt than for you to live longer. Start by walking and then hiking and then to the gym or buying a weight machine like bowflex. You do not have to look like Arnold but just to stay trim and fit. learn what the body can and cannot do. Learn how the body works with certain proteins and vitamin’s.

If you spent the money for adventure, then you do not want to get sick or have blisters or torn muscles and have no success, no you want to have fun,stay up with the pace of the adventure and to be successful, just to have great menories of the harvest and not memories of pain and defeat.

I , myself think that mental commitment is very important along with the physical part too. I live to hike in the mountains and to do that I work out by walking miles a day–to work- , to workout on my bowflex for x amount of time everyday and to contesting eating right with all the stuff that works for my body.

The same goes for when you harvest that special game critter, or fish. You must decide on the taxidermist  that yu0u would like to use and it dose not have to be the good old boy down the street. Here at Capp’s Taxidermy Studio LLC  we strive to be very professional and talented to complete any task sent our way. Its all in the mental staes. I can see the mount in my mind before I start the mount so I will know how and what to do when it comes to life and I am always willing to improvise on any given situation that may arise.

Use only commitment taxidermist for your works of art. Judge them on the experience, years in the business, full time  stats, and their professionalism–do they run a full time studio outside their home or do they have a day job and do it out of their garage and their rates. So charge way to much cuz of their overhead. Pick the one that will work the best for you–Try Capp’s Taxidermy Studio LLc and see the different…..
