Bear rug

Recommended Posts

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

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
