These are fantastic Cats. The second ones face is one of the best I have seen. Who is the taxidermist?
Randy Kuntz Taxidermy.....also HPA sponsor, banner is above. He catches a lot of flack from other taxidermists, even some from on here who have an issue with his working man's price. Somehow they think they have the right to bad mouth him via PM to our members. The one cat was actually taken to him BECAUSE a taxi on here told him not to go to Randy. Randy would never gloat about that, but I will because the jealousy and anger have gone too far.
Don't know Joe. I quick search of mountain lions shows those upturned tips on quite a few in similar pics from the wild. Maybe not the standard ear pose for taxi lions but a very natural and not to often seen ear position in wild lions.
Double thumbs up from me. Quality work there at great prices. I believe he tans his own hides so the customer saves in the end with great work and a fast turn around times by all accounts.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
