Frank Entsminger, born with natural artistic talent, has a deep passion to fine detail in his art sculptures. 2015 marks 53 years for Frank trekking the vast 49th state of Alaska where he has been hunting, photographing, and studying wildlife.  Frank has always carried his 20-60 power spotting scope not only hunting but each time he spent a day, days, weeks or even months each trip to the wilds of Alaska. Frank views wildlife much different than many of us. He sees every muscle, every tiny movement, & detail to the animals anatomy.  These visions are captured in art in his sculptures at his studio from his thousands of hours watching and studying Alaskan wildlife. Frank will work on a piece up to a year or more to capture that vision he was inspired to create. The detail in his pieces definitely can be appreciated by the discriminate fine art purchaser.

Frank's miniature bronze work

Dall sheep hunting in Alaska since 1962, guiding since the late 1960’s Frank has hunted in what is now the Tok Management Area since 1969. Guide, taxidermist and wildlife sculptor, his field  experience & study of sheep habits cleary is depicted in his work. Frank is well known among professional hunters and taxidermists as a Dall sheep expert. In 2008 Frank received the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep "Guide of the Year" award. Frank Entsminger's name is synonymous with the 40" rams across Alaska. Frank has guided or assisted over 200 successful sheep hunts. 20% of these rams were 40" or better. In 1974 when the Alaska Department of Fish and Game established the Tok Management Area, Frank was instrumental in developing public support for the trophy management concept. He has served for over 30 years on the local fish and game advisory committee, including 7 years as chair, and currently continues to serve.
