I'm a SDSM&T graduate in geology/paleontology. I currently am working in the oil fields. Yes, oil fields. Please don't whine at me about how bad oil drilling is for the earth unless you stop driving a car, shut the power off from your house, and refuse to use plastic. All energy sources take their toll out on the earth, including wind farms (run off oil and coal when there is no wind), solar energy (use of rare metals that require mining and create toxic lakes), dams (restructures the areas environment destroying the original habitats of animals and trapping hundreds of fish a day),hydrogen fuel (current hydrogen production requires burning fossil fuels), and electric cars (guess where your electricity comes from?). Yes, diversifying energy sources is a good idea, but until we have an actual source that doesn't rely on a fossil fuel, this is what we have to make due with. America uses a ton of energy, and not just energy, plastics. Guess what all of your hospitals affordable disposable products are made of?

Okay, hopping off of the soap box now...

All of the taxidermy stuff on my site is done by Paul Faber. I just help him out in the shop when I'm off from work.
Interests
He's been sitting in my freezer for a while now, and I'm probably not going to do anything with him. Originally bought from Leslie. These are her pics. This guy is wet tanned for taxidermy. I'm not sure of the measurements since he went straight into the freezer.

Asking what I paid, 525 plus shipping. He'd go priority at least, so anywhere from 14 to 19 dollars depending on what size box works. No trades please. US only.

Not right now sadly xD no money and I don't think my mother would want me doing it in the house. I'd have to wait tell I move out haha
I'm wanting to get into making softmounts one day, and I'm looking for a sort of specific-ish wolf. How big do the ones in AK get? I'm around 5'0 and I'm looking for like a massive wolf.

Do they have an email where I could contact them one of these days to see if they'd be willing to find one for me?xD pelt wise would just be a basic grey I'm not picky haha
Whats a basic price for a fully pelt: paws head and everything included? I'd like to make sure I'll have enough:la:

Alaska and Canada have some very large wolves- many in the 70-80 inch range. taxidermy.net has a lot of hunters that sell there, putting up something in the wanted section will get you a lot of offers. If you want a taxidermy quality wolf, prices can range from 400-2000 tanned. It all depends on color. Pure white, black or blue wolves are the most expensive. www.hideandfur.com/inventory/7… also has a large variety of wolves, including a nice blue.

We never have tails, we always skin for the fur market or lifesize. We just sold our coyotes, bobcat, raccoon and beaver to the fur buyer today. Coyote here are breaking up since it's getting warm outside, so I'm not sure if we'll have any good coyotes coming in anytime soon, but I can ask Paul if he has anything around the shop still for sale. I think he has a few wallhanger coyotes, but I'm not sure.

What are you looking for? And are you USA?

Our cheapest atm? Do you mean animal? Raw raccoon is 8-15 US, raw beaver 10-25, raw coyotes are 40-80, raw bobcats 150-500, tanned is an extra 50-70 bucks. I'm not sure if Paul got his export license this year. He's had it in the past, but we don't get many out of state customers. I'll ask him tomorrow.

Wow! Thank you so much, lady! :tighthug: :heart:
I certainly didn't expect anything in the mail, I was staring blankly at the package for a minute trying to figure out what it was until I read the name! This little fella is so cool! I hate to ask what it is but I'm assuming it's one of your fossil creature - ammonites? I love it!!! As soon as I saw it, I thought if your icon and photos. It's such a neat little thing. I collect rocks and glass bottles for my shelf so this is literally the most perfect thing!
Thank you so much! It means a lot. :love:
Happy New Year! Hope this year brings you all things amazing! :heart:
