Caught this cool wolverine today. Does anyone have a recommendation for a AK taxidermist? Should I skin it like usual or do I need to make different cuts?

Freeze it whole, and let the taxi do the cutting.
Depending on the form, they may want a dorsal cut, or a ventrical cut.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!

Joe Romero at Aurora WIldlife Arts. Wolverines are his specialty. Hopefully he hasn't retired.

Always been impressed with Jesses work. Everyone I know that has used him has been satisfied with the outcome and timeline.

Nice wolverine, Big Finn. I do not have a taxi to recommend, but I would like to hear of what comes out of your tanning/taxi search. My resources seem to be aged out.

This raises a red flag with me. Isn't this the same place that Matt ( ALASKAN) had such a bad experience with 10-15 year ago ? TJ can you weigh in on this ? Hopefully I am wrong.

This one has traveled many thousands of miles in checked bags and carry on, been handled by well over 2,000 kids and a few adults over the last 4 years. It had the rub in the middle of it's back when shot. They did a good tanning job for me. [Linked Image]

It's folded a little from the way I threw it down. The leather is really soft and supple.
