WORLD OF WILDLIFE EXHIBIT
Chester Mjolsness was born in Didsbury and grew up on the family farm west of Sundre. Chester was always a hunter but did not start trophy hunting until he retired from Spray Lakes Sawmill, which he and his brother started. He has travelled extensively to Australia, New Zealand, China, Mongolia, Russia, Iran, Spain, USA, Canada, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Cameroon. He has hunted in every continent except South America and Antarctica. Chester wanted to share his experiences of his world wide travels as well as his collection of trophy animal with the general public. The Sundre Museum is honored to be given this exhibit and will keep Chester’s’ legacy alive for generations to come.
This is a closed exhibit featuring 170 taxidermy birds and animals from around the world, including an elephant and giraffe. This collection was the effort of one man, Chester Mjolsness. Come and travel the world.
