With limited hunting opportunities available to todays outdoorsman, your hard earned memories deserve careful attention form your chosen wildlife artist.
Danny Crain's Game bird Designs combines artistic vision with true craftsmanship, making each piece as unique as your trophy.
Raised in Tucson, Danny grew up hunting and fishing in Arizona. At 13, he enrolled in the Northwestern School of taxidermy, a correspondence course out of an outdoor life magazine. With his Dad hanging over his shoulder, they managed to hang a few of their hunting memories on the wall. Eventually, he apprenticed with Jim Johnson, another local taxidermist, and honed his skills to a higher level. In 1986, Danny joined A.S.U.'s archery team, where he became a collegiate All-American and obtained a degree in secondary education. After becoming a physical education teacher in 1992, taxidermy began to fill those summer breaks and vacations teachers get. Spending countless hours reteaching himself the skills needed, Danny attained a level that has won him several awards at local taxidermy competitions and pleased customers that demand quality in their mounts. Being blessed with a beautiful family and the opportunity to hunt with good friends, Danny continues that quest for excellence and balance that we all strive for in our lives.
