Bischoff’s Taxidermy was begun in 1922 by Al Bischoff. The original location was on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. Bischoff created a major taxidermy studio in the heart of Hollywood for many stars of the era. At Bischoff’s Taxidermy, Roy Rogers’ Trigger and many other iconic mounts were taxidermied. Over the years, Al accumulated a huge collection of his own taxidermy birds and animals from around the world. Today this beautiful collection still exists and is shared by Bischoff’s with you.
