A Little About Us…

Top of Texas Taxidermy is a proud Texas company and highly respected amongst our customers. We started our life out in 2003 as the former “Trophy Taxidermy of West Texas” until October of 2016 when Erik Grimland bought the company and “Top of Texas Taxidermy” was born. Our team has well over 30 years combined experience in the taxidermy industry and we have been recognized numerous times for our award- winning work.

Erik Grimland

Owner/Taxidermist

Erik is an avid outdoorsman and has hunted and fished many times across 4 continents; North America, South America, Europe, and Africa. His passion for the outdoors can clearly be seen in his work. Erik grew up in the outdoors and had a gun and fishing rod in his hand ever since he could walk. A former police officer, Erik took an early retirement so he could focus 100% of his attention toward taxidermy and the outdoors. Erik started his taxidermy career in 2007 with an apprenticeship under the great Frank and Colleen Williams of the former “Trophy Taxidermy of West Texas”. Erik is also a graduate of the “ALL TROPHY’S SCHOOL OF TAXIDERMY” most intensive program offered and receiving top marks for his work. You can rest assured that we have the knowledge and experience to handle your trophies of a lifetime.

Additionally, Erik has been a well- known hunting and fishing guide for many years and is the co-owner of Rockin G Ranch LLC which is a highly respected outfitting service here in the panhandle of Texas.
