Great Bear Taxidermy

4 posts in this topic

Has anybody ever heard of them? Do they do good work, and what do they charge?

I've heard of them..all i can say is go take a look at their work and then make a decision..but that goes for all taxidermists in general..if i remember right they charged like $9 and some odd cents per inch for fish

if you are thinking of mounts, it is best to check their display work. Then just like everything you become acquainted with the person's work. After that it is very easy to tell them what you like and don't so they can personalize your peice to your liking.

With that said, I have had Bearpaw taxidermy do some work for me. I had a URL pike done and he had a photo from when I caught it. He got the coloring perfect as it could be. The colors of pike have a very large range and the photo matches very well. If I have another peice done, he will have first chance because of that. There are a lot of good taxidermists, and some not. View a few and make a selection. Pike was 40 incher, cost me 305.00. Brent

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.
