Re: Old taxidermy museum in North Central Pa?
Fin fur and feather was a nice place to stop and browse
in the late 50s thru the 60s. They had some animals caged
behind the store including a nice size bear.
The owner whoe's name has been mentioned, became an early distributor for Artic Cat snowmobiles and warehoused them there. Apperently he became pretty successful, ultimately sold the franchise, and became pretty much a full time hunter around the world. Ultimatly opening the museum
and a much larger store behind the old location which still
exists. What with the overhead cost of running a place like
that I often wondered how they could stay open. But I guess
its easy to make a small fortune if you have a big one to
start with. I guess it ultimately got small enough that the
place closed. Id also (heard) that he had gotten into trouble with having protected animals in his exhibit.
Actually the grand canyon isn't all that far from there
at least by way of crow fly.
