Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Taxidermy Exhibition Contest 2019


The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is presenting an opportunity for Louisiana taxidermists to showcase their work. The conservation of wildlife and fisheries natural resources involves many facets of engagement, including education of Louisiana’s citizens on threats that may imperil the many species we enjoy in The Sportsman’s Paradise. Lifelike displays of wildlife and fisheries species enables people to get a close-up look at animals that many may never get to experience, as not all Louisianans are active in the great outdoors. LDWF would like to display more of our natural resources at its Headquarters in Baton Rouge and at several LDWF Field Offices. We invite taxidermists across our great state to submit entries for viewing and recognition by the public coming into LDWF offices.

Taxidermy work has been present in the LDWF Headquarters Lobby since the building was established on Quail Drive in 1988. These pieces of wildlife and fisheries artwork, developed by Emile LeBlanc, Jeff Deblieux, David Sturgis, Jerry Bourg, Tommy’s Taxidermy, Bill’s Taxidermy, and Murphy’s Taxidermy, have provided that close glimpse of these fine specimens to many visitors over the years, perhaps enticing some to get their own ‘hands on’ experience with these critters.
