Co-owner and GM of Conroe Taxidermy, one of the largest taxidermy shops in the nation. He has been involved from receiving to installation for over 30 years.
Barret has traveled extensively across the globe – both as a guide and a hunter. He has also taken his expertise to various museums – including The Ark Encounter in Kentucky, The Houston Museum of Natural Science and The Wildlife Museum of San Juan in Puerto Rico, just to name a few.
His passion is trophy room design. Barret is always looking to expand the offerings of Conroe Taxidermy to make the most of any space for the avid hunter. Some of his unique ideas come in the form of trees, mountains, and most recently the night sky. Working with craftsman to make these ideas a reality is where most of his time is spent.
He is currently moving around the state, meeting ranch owners and managers, working to keep hunting alive and well in spite of the global pandemic.
