Bear rug

7 posts in this topic

I am hoping to get a bear skin this year. Does any one know of a good place to get it made into a rug in west central Minnesota. If I have to, I will go any where to get it done right.

What ever advice you get, be sure to check it out before you make a move. My first bear turned out excellent. However that guy went to Alaska. My second bear someone recommened this joker. When I got it back, after two years, it looked like somebodys Black Lab that was starved. Nobody to blame but myself.

mark Arnold out of Detroit Lakes does awesome work and if you ever get up in that area he will show you his show room and he does awesome work. His business is Toad Lake Taxadermy and he lives out on Hwy 34 towards Park Rapids. Give him a jingle if your ever interested. Only problem is it does take some time because he does get a lot of people to come to him and best bet is too look him up and call ahead ot set a time up to meet with him.

Jeff Lannoye From Thief River Falls MN Dose Awsome work, He;s done two bears for me an I will recommend him highly. I've seen his work with a full mount grizzly, two full mount black bears squaring off against each other an numerous heads an shoulder and three quater mount black bear. Seen lots of whitetail an elk that are extreamly nicley done. He's done lots of work for people in the metro area. I can give you his number if ya want. Later Boar

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
