    Taxidermists

    I am sure most hunters will agree that each taxidermist has his specialties. Some guys are great on deer, not so great on sheep and vice versa.
    Well, I would like opinions on who is the best in BC for a full body mount on bears. I am in the process of booking an Alaskan Brownie hunt and want to cover all my bases.

    Take a look at Orion Taxidermy in Sask if you’re willing to look outside of BC. They do some real quality bears as well as high quality habitat work.

    He's in Merritt and worth a call. I've seen some of his work up close. They look alive!
    I saw the polar bear recently, thing was huge.

    I believe Ray will have a booth set up at WSSBC show in Penticton as well next week. Good choice for a BC taxidermist for sure.

    Ray did half life size of a black bear and a rug, both turned out awesome. I wouldn’t think twice about taking him a life size brownie.
