respected for the quality of his work, Locie Murphy has earned
a reputation that discriminating sportsmen from across the
country seek. As a big game hunter, he knows the time and expense
that goes into the taking of a trophy animal.
Special attention is given to each original design to enhance
the best features of the animal. Details of natural habitat and
wildlife behavior are studied to recreate a diorama specific to the
animal's origin. The award-winning taxidermist's work is on display
at the Bass Pro Shop in Springfield, Missouri, as well as in many
of the top hunters' and collectors' trophy rooms across the country.
Locie's artistic talent has also evolved into creating
bronze sculptures of wildlife. He helped sculpt what many believe
to be the most accurate whitetail deer sculptures available.
