I went by word of mouth and will not look anywhere else. He had a show room full of mounts for me to look at and use as examples. He asked about ear position, which way it should be looking, every detail imaginable. He took measurements while I was standing there. I got it back in 3 months and everyone who has seen it has been blown away by the quality. Mine was $450 with the wood plaque. The plaque added $100. I have seen some of his Bobcats and now I want to get one with a bow. I guess I will count my blessings that I found someone so good on my first deer.
