Snowshoe taxidermist

Does anyone know who will do a snowshoe mount. From what I have been hearing is that they are really difficult and most taxidermist will not do a snowshoe mount. I was fortunate enough to get one back during the season and would love to get it mounted, but cant find anyone who will do them. Any help would be great.

If I were you I'd get it freeze-dried. I have one that was done about 15 years ago that sill looks fantastic. I also have a skin mount of a hare and a grey fox. I prefer the freeze-dried.

I had one freeze dried about 10 years ago and put in a glass case. Clements taxidermy in Knox Pa. Don't have the number on hand but it's online. I don't know if he still will do them or not. It came out buetiful and still looks like the day I killed it.
