Re: My 1st record book bear

Thanks for all the nice comments. Hes still in the freezer(hyde) as of yet. Times tickin though if I want a taxidermist to do anything with him!
He REALLY SCARRED UP! He mustve been a heck of a scrapper! My wife says that the big bear rug on the wall is nice, so just go shoot another nice one for the taxidermist. But being so big and old, I just cant give up on a mount of some kind for this one.
His ears are tattered, and one of his K-9's is so rounded I doubt he'd have made the winter. Ill post a couple more pics of him on this thread. Maybe some input from you guys would help me figure out if he's worth the $ to mount or if my wife is right..........theres always more bears, but only 1 first record book entry.

Re: My 1st record book bear

Ok, is he too beat up to make a decent mount? Tattered ears, and scarred up bad..
Scars everywhere...
Tattered ears...
But, still cool enough for a mount? got any input? I'd like to here your thoughts on weather or not to mount it. Remember what I already have hangin in the house...(see earlier reply)

Re: My 1st record book bear

Winmag, I have a bear that we nicknamed "Scareface", His fur is rubbed on forehead, and thin in spots, way more tore up than yours and he looks great on the wall, looks like a warrior, 31" around neck @ ears, 19 yr.old, broken teeth and broken toe, made a bar stool out of the rest of him, arms are his

Re: My 1st record book bear

congrats on the nice bear. The way i see it is one day you may regret not mounting it if you choose not to but if you choose to have it mounted i doubt you will ever regret having it mounted. thats just how i look at it
