    Default Recomendations for Taxidermist in Ketchican.

    If we get lucky and take a bear or two on POW, I need a good recomendation in Ketchican for a taxidermist. I am thinking it will be easier to leave the bear there and have it shipped to us when it is done. Does this sound reasonable?

    Two choices--Southeast Taxidermy 247-2421

    or

    Tall Tale Taxidermy 225-2502

    I'd probably go with Tall Tale ( Louis Szurleys)

    Default Randy at SE taxidermy...

    hasn't ever sent us back something we weren't happy with. Though I've never used them myself, there seems to be much more of a local following at Tall Tale. The prices there are slightly higher, so it's an individual preference thing I'm sure...

    I couldn't say about the shipping thing at SE, as we just pick it up - although I would hope that either one would agree to shipping the finished product before they would let you walk away....

    Not if you seen his work you wouldnt. I have a really nice bear I shot out at the loran station up carroll inlet, had randy make a rug out of it, came out really nice, tall tales work i shoddy, look at his mounts on display in the wndow, looks like a4th grader did them up. wasnt impressed in the least.

    Thanks guys! Looks like SE will be the one if we are lucky enough to get a bear! It might be a small one though. Dont think there is a trophy hunter in the bunch and none of us have shot a bear before. Legal and it will likely be shot!
