Itís taken me way too long to post a thank you on the site but just before school started this year (couple weeks ago) B&C 04, Boomer and several other guys from their unit on base had a brown bear tanned out for my classroom. I was given the bear last spring by fish and game and B&C 04 hooked me up with Tundra Taxidermy in Houston (who did a great job!) and the rest is history. I was able to cover most of a large wall with it in my classroom. I have a nice little 5'8 black bear next to it for comparison. The kids love it, they can't believe this bear came from the Valley, most had never seen the claws of one up close.
I know some of the guys that donated money to have it done are on the forum and I apologize for not knowing your names. I hope you can all chime in and everyone gives you REP points.
