    Default taxidermist for BB rug or 3/4 mount

    Asking the brain trust for help.... spent a lot of time, $$ and climbing to take my bear and I dont want to have a less than perfect job. Not concerned about price... someone reccommended Philip Soucy but he's seems to be more of a cat guy. Any help much appreciated...

    I'd recommend the guy who did my wife's bear but the shipping would be $$$. Maybe those guys on Mounted in Alaska and you could get a cameo walk-on.

    Give Rich Hamilton at Browtine Taxidermy a call. His black bear rugs and half life size mounts are the best that I have seen. 907-488-4778

    I have used Foster's taxidermy several times and have been very pleased each time.

    I just picked up my elk from Foster's and he did an awesome job. I haven't yet figured out how to post pictures so can't do it. While there I saw a full body brown bear and some black and brown bear rugs. You really should stop and look at his place before deciding!

    I did that mount. Looks like a quality mount.

    Nothing worse than a poor job...

    I suggest that you call Tundra Tanning and Taxidermy. Great people, I believe all their bear work is done in state.
