Just picked up a soft tan/ wall hanger from Nature's Way. They're not cheap but they do stellar work and I'm thrilled with it.

Someone here needs to say it...


Stay away from Michelle Nelson Taxidermy.   Do a little research on this site and you'll understand why.

I use Tru to life (Jeff reeves) out of east Wenatchee.  He sources the rug part but does everything else.  Rug turned out amazing.....about a 12 to 15 month turn time.

All I need is the rug part done. The bear will be tanned already.

I have used Wildlife Creations in Coeur d' alene for bears and lots of other stuff out of state for you  but I think it would be worth if for you-reasonable prices-pretty fast and best of all great work
