Located along Highway 35 south of Hudson, Aves Studio can be a tricky location to find. It is housed in a red building a bit off the highway and you can't turn in from southbound 35. However, it does feature a large trailer with its logo prominently displayed by the entrance, which is visible from southbound 35. When you see it, you'll need to make a U-turn and head back toward the entrance on north 35.
Once you enter the studio you'll find an impressive collection of mounted game. Aves specializes in taxidermy and it even has some fun with a few of the items mounted in the store, including a mounted lamp with a deer hoof as the base that holds the stem with the lightbulb on it. It has also created Apoxie Sculpt and Apoxie Clay, a type of molding clay now used in countless projects all around the world. A full gallery showing some of the clay's many uses is available online. If you're an artist needing clay or a hunter wanting to mount your latest kill, you'll want to make the trip to Aves. You can also make orders through its website.
