bear skin rug?

4 posts in this topic

I havent killed my bear yet this year, but I still have a big one coming into the bait. I got started "dreaming" about what I was going to do after the kill, and I started wondering how much a rug is going to cost me. Anyone had one done recently with or without the head? Feedback appreciated. Thanks

I had one done about 4 years ago, turned out great. It was only a 225lb bear, about 6 feet from tip of nose to tail. The guy did a wonderful job and as I recall it was about 125 a foot so 6 x 125 = 800 bucks. Mine has the head on. Prices may be different now, this guy came recomended, and skinned it, stored the meat for me and like I said did a wonderful job on the rug. Its a shame that I haven't finished my basement yet so I can hang it up.

I had one done about 6 years ago and he did an awesome job. It was my first bear and all I did was feild dress it and he skinned it out for me as part of the deal. He doesn't charge an arm and a leg either. I had mine done with an open mouth with a black outside felt lining and a silver/gray inside felt lining.He also put in grommets so it hangs on the wall better. If you are looking for a good job look him up. He is just south of you in Holyoke.My friend just had his done with him and loves it also. it took about 9 months to get it done.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
