    I hope the client gave you a cape with enough fur to pull that one off.

    I want to see the results of this one!

    Please post some pics as you progress, what a terrific looking mount this will be.

    If you see this, I'd like to chat with you about some skins we have been sitting on at your shop, shoot me a PM with a decent time to call if you get a chance. Thanks.

    I am the client of Dennis, this Ibex is just one of mounts Dennis is currently doing for me. You have seen here on AH others Dennis has done for me. All total Dennis has mounted 15 full body and shoulder mounts for me.
    I have used 3 different taxidermist to do an additional 50+ mounts for me.
    1 local taxidermist (small shop and quality control like Dennis) does excellent work, but mostly African, deer and elk.
    1 taxidermist had 3 different people working on 3 mounts, so
    not all good quality.
    1 taxidermist on my second trip to Africa. I toured his shop, saw his work,
    price was cheap!!! What I didn't know was he was showing me His personal work, not the work of his employees. Of 6 mounts, 2 went to the garbage, 2 are ok, and 2 need to be remounted. I tried to work with my PH
    and get some justification, but when the PH is getting a cut on the Taxidermy Work, well you guys know how that works.
    I've looked at mounts at Hunting Shows, Sporting Goods Stores, Lodges and Castles throughout the World.
    Look at the face, look at the fine details, the nose, the eyes, the ears, does the mount look alive, a cat or a bear are the easiest to tell how good the person is. If they're not a good artist, not a good taxidermist.
    Dennis and Crew are the best I have seen.
    His attention to detail and realism are rarely seen in the taxidermy world.
    Is Dennis the cheapest, I don't know because I never have asked Him to quote Me a price, I know His work is priceless if You compare His work to
    that that comes out of Africa and I will continue to use only Dennis.
