My name is Nick Genereux and I am the Master Taxidermist at Outdoor Addictions Taxidermy. I was born and raised in Crookston, Minnesota and grew up hunting and fishing. I attended South Dakota State University and have a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries management. I am a military veteran and an avid sportsman, having fished and hunted — with both rifle and archery gear — in multiple states.
I attended taxidermy school after completing college, and then opened my full-time studio after learning all aspects of taxidermy from the basics to advanced techniques. I have continued attending training sessions with multiple World Champions to learn advanced techniques and skills. I attend multiple state, national, and world taxidermy shows each year. These events allow me to compare my work to other taxidermists, continue to improve my quality, and learn the best up-to-date techniques. I regularly bring everyday customer work to these competitions and have won many awards with them; some highlights are listed below. For a more thorough list see the Awards Page.
