Reuben Unger lives in Clavet, Saskatchewan. He has always had a passion for wildlife, particularly birds, studying them since his childhood. He became a self taught taxidermist as a youth and continued to do this as a hobby until 1998. At this time, he took a class in wildfowl carving and became very interested in this art form. Working from his home/studio in Clavet, Reuben is a wildfowl carver turning a piece of wood into a realistic bird sculpture. In each of his pieces he strives to produce an artistic yet detailed replica of his subject matter.
