If you see Amy and Scott Leutjen, Owner of A Breed Apart Taxidermy in Suring, be sure to give them a big ol’ ATTABOY!!! Not only did Scott agree to mount Isaiah’s bear for a great price in life size form, he finished it in about 4 weeks and then drove 4 ½ hours across the state to personally deliver the bear and camo-dipped skull to Isaiah and his family. He also picked up the bear meat from Meatski’s Meats in Pound, WI and delivered that to Isaiah’s family too. Meatski’s continues to support ORK Kids with free butchering and processing. Thank you Justin and Ashley!!
Scott said when they opened the back of the van to reveal the mount they heard a lot of “whoa, that’s so cool.” Everyone was happy and liked the bear. The family had fun unpacking all the bear meat and snack sticks. As Scott was getting ready to leave all the kids were sitting around the bear petting and hugging it in the living room. Mission accomplished everyone!!
Great work Scott and Amy Leutjen, Nate and Melanie Stahl, Jim and Janice Frankson, Justin Wisnefske and AshleyCochenet and hound crews who assisted with Isaiah’s hunt. And as always, thank you Wisconsin Wildlife Federation for partnering with ORK year after year to match a child to your learn to bear hunt bear tag. Congratulation’s Isaiah and family. Enjoy your bear mount and bear snacks!
