Hi! I am a wildlife artist (painting, carving and sculpting) and have done a little bit of work with basic mammal taxidermy. I am in Alaska and wanted to see if anyone in the area would be interested in selling a tanned (wet or dry) black bear hide (any color morph is acceptable) for a reasonable price for me to work with as a first bear mount. I would not be re-selling it, I just want to work with it as a project this summer/fall. I have been following many of tutorials and posts on this site for quite a few years and just recently decided to create an account as I start to become more confident in my skills. Please message me separately if you have something. Advice is also appreciated. Thanks!
