Kent Reedy is a native to the Midwestern United States. He became involved in Taxidermy at the age of 16. An outdoor enthusiast and his intense interest in his "hobby" led him to self-taught techniques and artistry of Taxidermy.
He was first drawn to waterfowl and upland birds by the natural beauty, intricate animation, and presentation in their natural surroundings. His initial ten years of developmental study focused on bird anatomy and development of artificial products for methodological application in Bird Taxidermy. This eventually led Kent to the Iowa State Taxidermy Competition held in 1985. The competition was the first of many others that held great significance in Kent's career.
Since his competitive career began, he has judged numerous state shows, the
European World show as well as national, international, and world competitions.
