Jason Reifsnyder

We bought the First Fork Lodge in March of 2020.  After 23 years of service I retired from the Navy in April 2022.  In January of 2023 I went to taxidermy school at Western Pennsylvania School of Taxidermy and graduated in March 2023.  The plan when going to school was to be able to preserve wildlife for friends and family to occupy our down time at the Lodge.  This would also give me the opportunity to possibly work for another taxidermist as a job if desired.  I fell in love with creating these great pieces of art and decided I would open a shop.  Shannon and I have 2 teenage children and live in the owners quarters at the First Fork Lodge.
