A fine offer! I'd snap it up but I don't have that chalet built yet. I suppose it's illegal to ship it to California or something dumb like that. Frigin state won't let me mail order elk hide and won't let Tandy carry it either.

I could ask my buddy who used a squatch suit to create the "great Genoa NV sightings" if he still has that lol!


But beware,, he was chased by a drunken rancher one night who had a loaded 30-30 lol!

hey there say, ron... wow, just saw this... retireing, then... oh my...

hope the next 'trail in life' will do well ... yep, like mouse said, bloom where planted... you will know which trail to work, when it comes...

we all enjoyed seeing all this work of yours...


extra note:
wow, i remember my auntie that died, years back, in her pond, HAD a bearskin rug--it came from our grandparents house--not sure from where, or who, but they lived in ohio (think it was brownish?)... i remember the smell of it, as a kid, when we visited there...
never did know what happened to it, but it was one of those unique kid-memory things, :)) ...

thanks for sharing, once again...

Taxidermy has been going on at Finnskogen for decades. You find the art, more or less skilfully done, in many homes. Here's a collection from "Finnskogen Turist- og Villmarksenter"
