MAX: Best way to cut hole in hipoly model ?

How would you smart folks cut a hole in a model whose mesh is dense? I'm pretty sure that Shape Merge will do it cleanly, and perhaps a boolean operation, ( I will try both) but I was just wondering what other opinions there was about this.

Thank you so much.

select the polys on either side of the hole and then bridge them

if the mesh is dense , i'll go with the ''Shape merge'' tool ,convert it to poly then clean up those nasty unwanted vertecies .
