  8. Rick webber in columbiana makes some of the nicest skin mounts I have seen. Brucker taxidermy by west branch did a good job, but I dont know if he is still in business. I would say that your choice should somwhat be based on species.
  9. I am looking at getting a 31 inch channel cat mounted.Thanks for the advice as well guys on places where I can get it done an all.

    rick weber is the best in Ohio hands down. You can't match his work
  11. I used to do a little fish taxidermy and mounting catfish is a challenge because of all the shrinkage in the head. Do not be surprised if they recomend a fiberglass reproduction on the cat.
  12. If you are wanting to mount a cat you will need to go with a graphite or fiberglass repoduction to get anything decent. google ron lax taxidermay adn see whta they have to offer.
  13. Hey thanks guys I'll have to look him up and see what he says.
