    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    I don't "cut deals" but I'd be more than happy to mount the Bear. What species of Bear are you talking about, and where was it killed? Details ... If interested, e-mail me for details and price [email protected]

    That is really a loaded question. This being a taxidery site, all of us would love to mount your bear including me, HOWEVER, if you want the BEST for this bear, call Dennis Harris at 821-648-4800. You can see his work by visiting artistryofwildlife.com You start price shopping you are gonna be disappointed in the end. There are few who can match Dennis' skills.

    Is he looking for a deal or is he looking for a well done, long lasting, natural looking, high quality representation of the animail he is so very proud of? If he is interesed in the later, send me a PM and we can discuss the possibilities.

    Thank you,
    Chris Neff

    LMAO "Cut him a deal". ROTFLMAO

    I'll "cut him a deal". I'll mount it and all he has to do is pay me the full price I get from other clients and I'll return him a realistic mount that wil please him and all who see it for years to come. How's that?

    Just so you know, most of us have seen the snake oil sales pitch before: "You mount it for free and we'll advertise that you did the mount." EXCUSE ME! If I get paid a fair price for what I do, then I'll be able to pick and choose my own advertising venues. Real quick - tell me who mounted Milo Hansen's world record whitetail????

    if he shot in on Northeast PA, then its a black bear, archery season came in yesterday, I don`t do deals either, just quality mounts at a fair price.

    Ill give him a deal, $8,000.00....Doesnt include habitat.

    Sad part is I guarentee this bear will end up going out to low bid, and look like it when its done.

    Id send that bear to Lynchman, I beleive he did the now #3 bear, and it looks incredible....like it deserves to look.

    Real quick - tell me who mounted Milo Hansen's world record whitetail?

    Joe Meder? NOPE

    Bill Yox? Nope

    Bub Hill and the original mount looked like dog crapola. See even a hack can mount a world record head when you know the person who killed it. Now WHO as ever heard of Bub Hill before or after he mounted the Hansen Buck? And, I had to go look it up to find out.
