Meet Our Judges

Greg Brumfield - WhitetailsMany of you

Greg has been doing taxidermy and actively competing since the mid 1990's. He is an extremely talented taxidermist and sculptor with considerable judging experience. Some of his major accomplishments in the competition arena include winning the pre-sculpted division at the World Taxidermy Championships, as well as North American Champion at the National Taxidermist Association convention. Greg has always enjoyed judging, seeing old friends, and meeting new ones.

Greg Cuvelier - Gameheads/Mammals

Greg hails from our neighbor to the north. In Iowa, Greg owns and operates a taxidermy studio in Aplington Iowa. Greg started his taxidermy career in 1990 and since then has gone on to win several top honors at taxidermy competitions including multiple Breakthroughs and North American Champion at the NTA. Greg is very knowledgeable in all areas of taxidermy, and we are pleased he could join us and judge our mammals and game heads.


Brett Wingfield - Fish

Brett also joins us from our northern neighboring state, where he works as an instructor and taxidermist at Northwest Iowa School of Taxidermy in Spirit Lake, IA. When it comes to fish, Brett knows his stuff. Being an instructor at NIST makes him the perfect candidate to judge competitions. He is very good at teaching and explaining how to make our fish mounts better. He’s also a major player in competitions, winning Breakthrough, National Champion, Second in World, and Best in World titles. Get those fish mounted up, don’t miss an opportunity to learn from one of the best.



Korey Alleman - Birds

Korey is the owner of The Elite Outdoors Taxidermy in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Korey loves waterfowl hunting and mounting birds. His list of accomplishments in the competition arena is long, including North American Champion and Second in World. Korey is a great judge and we look forward to him joining us for the first time this August.
