A fella out of the Macungie area AR taxidermy. He does awesome work! He has done about ten mounts for me so far, Top notch work! As far as the age the Game Commission takes a tooth sample, then has it tested and that determines the age.
Very Nice bear and mount... Congrat's... Your mount is almost identical to one I got in Pa. a few year's back. If you would please PM me the web site or number of the guy that did the mount. As mine went out of business. Thank's..
