I can't say enough for Swope's Taxidermy in Halifax. I had a great experience from start to finish. I dropped the hide off June 23 and it was ready October 15 - less than 4 months! I am very pleased with this mount and it looks great in our living room. My father had beautiful bear rug made with his bear. I would recommend Swope's to anyone!
Note: I am not a professional photopgraher. The inside of the bear's nose is not red - I had some lighting issues.
