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

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Sure wish that it would freeze up before the snow in the forecast comes

      I did get out on the ice, but unfortunately it was the ice on my driveway.  Spent a lot of time spreading salt and sand!  No time for fishing this weekend.

      Speaking of towers, does anyone know what the tower is for on 24 north of the VDL?
