Arizona Wings Taxidermy

Grady and Nancy Smith

Grady is a well-known big game taxidermist in Arizona. He has been hunting and fishing since he was a young boy. As a youth he helped his Dad, Don Smith who worked with the Arizona Game and Fish, manage wildlife. His training to date includes 1 year of taxidermy school and 6 months of advance training. Grady has changed his focus from mammals to just birds. For this he took training by Rodger Gidney of Cedar Glen Wholesale Bird Taxidermy. He also got ongoing training and help from our good friends Bob and June Hancock, one of Arizona's best bird taxidermists.

Kyle Thorn came to Arizona Wings as an apprentice. He and his family love the outdoors and hunting just as much as Grady. Kyle also had been receiving training from Bob Hancock, but when Bob officially retired, Bob recommended Kyle come talk to Grady. After meeting Kyle, Grady knew it would be a good match. Kyle has now become a full partner and has grown into an award winning Taxidermist

Together, Grady and Kyle are quite a team.

“We look forward to serving you, our customer with the best mounts and best service possible.”
