any one know about taxadermy. i picked up a full mount of a 706 pound bear i harvested in 2011. the mount has multiple skin rolls around the neck and under arms. i think this guy did not use the proper form and he destroyed my skull when he removed it. boone and crocket says its missing 3 + inches and scores 21 3/16 now the way it sits. very disapointed spent alot of money on my trophy animal and got poor work and no respect for this great bear.

probably help if you posted up some pics. if you lost 3" off the skull you would have shattered the previous state record.

that is why you should not go cheap or not do your homework before picking a taxidermist . the good ones are honest and expensive hence the reason they get repeat customers

No, that's what he means. Check out the other thread. Not sure he lost three inches, but the skull is definitely butchered.

Yes, he cut it. Read the other thread about the same topic. It explains it all. He knows it can't be measured...
