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

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
