Taxidermist for small game

I shot a unique looking cottontail last season and think I want to get it mounted.
Trouble is, Pretty much all the rabbits that I have seen mounted don't quite look right.
Must be a tough critter to do a good job on.



Anybody have any suggestions within an hour or so of NEPA Susquehanna county ?
It's the one on the right.

Re: Taxidermist for small game

Cottontails and snowshoe hares are a PIA to do, but there are some places that do excellent freeze dry work on them. There is someone who posts around the forums who had a snowshoe freeze dried somewhere- "Beagler" maybe? I think he said it looked good. I don't know who he had to do it.

Re: Taxidermist for small game

I'd suggest freeze-dried as well. I just looked in my photobucket account for my hare pic but I must have accidentally deleted it.
