is ready to move in

I killed this bear back in 2002. I was intimidated to mount such a big animal as at the time, as a squirrel was the largest LS I had ever done. I let another taxidermist do it, and with in a year it was coming apart. So I wet it up and took it on apart and put it in the freezer. That was in 2004 I think. Well after getting my MT lion done a few weeks ago I decided it was time to get my bear back in the house. and boy oh boy the wife is going to be thrilled when she walks in as this thing takes up a lot of space. LOL

But that is why I have a trophy room. And as tiny as it is, it will be full today.

way back then.


ready to go in the house

Awesome! I am expecting my bear to arrive next week. I killed it in May. I'm just getting a shoulder mount with some greenery around it though. What did yours weigh?

wow that is an awesome piece but just had to laugh when you said you were intimidated to mount it. My mind went south:)

But if you need a hand moving it into the house I would love to help, just to see that.

Dang, that's a great looking finished product. But man, I'd be chapped about my paid-for mount coming apart in two years!

That's an awesome pic. I'm a bit disappointed I wasn't more serious about building up my points to get a bear tag in Wisconsin. I never thought I'd have to worry about it. Now as a Tennessee resident I loose all the ones I had built up.

Oh I wasn't happy. And every time I started to order a form over the past 9 years I thought about it, and as I was sewing it up I thought more about it, and as I was carving the foam for the rocks and etc..... I thought about, and now thanks to you I thought about it. But its all good Lol.

That looks great but that ugly sumbuck in the first pic has gotten a lot uglier in the last 10 years. \:D

Seriously if you need help moving it I'll help ya when I drop off the deer and pick up the gun. I'm leaving Wednesday morning for Alabama so if not before then it will be the following Saturday or Sunday at the earliest. Just depends on when the processor calls and tells me its ready.

Oh it comes apart... And is a lot lighter then you would think. The bear is about 45 lbs - 50 lbs and the base is only 35-40lbs. Only way it would go in without taking them apart is have French doors. It's in da house.

Gotcha. I was wondering how in the world you'd ever get it in.
