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

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
