About the Artist

Ed Borner has long been recognized in the hunting industry as one of the most experienced and creative taxidermists in the nation. Completion of training with the Northwestern School of Taxidermy in 1960 served as the beginning of a career in the wildlife restorative arts. Ed is truly an artist and master craftsman, taking the mounting process far beyond the basic steps of processing, into creating wildlife art. The knowledge of anatomy, sculpting, wildlife and their habitats, when combined with the basic taxidermy process results in an ability to create exceptional trophy pieces.

With over five decades in the industry, it is obvious that his work has surpassed the test of time in meeting customer expectations, growing within the trade, being creative and innovative in producing quality, truly representative specimens. Ed has a passion for hunting (over 3 decades of hunting in South Africa) and has studied the African and North American game in their natural habitats, and has also participated in international and national conservation efforts.

Ed is a Past President of the Denver Safari Club International, a Life Member of Safari Club International, Professional Hunters Association of South Africa, NRA, National Taxidermists Association and he is an official measurer for SCI (master measurer), and Rowland Ward.
