bear skin rug?

Recommended Posts

muttly

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.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
