    I think the only one left is that guy at the Y or Steve's on the sterling highway south of Soldotna. Both have Ben recommended to me though I've never used either.

    Unfortunately my friend Steve passed away awhile back. Some gal took it over but I know nothing about her, other than she was tutored by Leon at Northland Furs. Never been a big fan of his work. Saw a bull moose euro he did recently too......still not impressed.
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    Caribou unlimited let me down the one and only time I tried him. I brought in photos of exactly how I wanted my mount done and he did it the exact opposite.
    Leon at Northland has never let me down and is the only one I use now.
    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,
    Teach a man to fish and he'll also learn to drink, lie, and avoid the honey do list.

    Interesting. I took my ten inch billy there also. Told him I wanted it's head turned left specifically. In fact, I had it put in writing on my receipt. As I had a specific spot in mind for the shoulder mount. When I came in to get it, head was perfectly straight. He poo-poo'ed my disappointment and after much haggling I finally got him to make a slight adjustment to it. Neither one of us were too happy.
    I will say the work was well done other than not paying attention to written directions.
    Pretty inexcusable to disregard a customers specific request when their lifetime trophy is involved. (At least from the customers standpoint).
    Your sarcasm is way, waaaayyyyyyyy more sarcastic than mine!
