#27 largest bear ever taken in North America...
« on: December 31, 2012, 10:46:54 AM »
The guy who did my deer for me has moved out to KY to work. He sent me these pictures of his latest project! It's the 27th largest bear ever taken in North America based on skull size. He did a great job on it! If you are in the KY region the shop is Gunners Taxidermy in Nicholasville. His name is Ryan Rhodes. He's a very detailed taxidermist, that's why I picked him to do mine.

I would love to have a bear like this to be done!  --7-8-9

There certainly is a difference in a taxidermist and a good taxidermist. It looks like he does fine work. And wow what a bear that is!

Nice, but I'm glad we don't have that many bears here. We have enough bad things in our woods, but I don't need that!
