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.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
