I should freeze the hide while I decide whether or not to have a rug made, right?

If you freeze the hide make sure you fold it so it's even
And fold it as big as you can so it freezes quick 
Where's the pics ????

As some remember, I shot one on the 7th day of my spring hunting but I was unable to locate it.

Come fall, I had gone out again and again, but with no luck.  This is a Kitsap County bear, only 40 minutes from my house.  I was planning on a short morning hunt and didn't really expect to find anything.  I got to the end of where I was going to hunt and started to head back to the truck.  Then, I saw a black stump that moved. :)  But then, it was gone.  I looked all over on this big hillside and saw it again, but then it disappeared again.  Eventually, I got a good lock on its location and watched it for several minutes to make sure there were no cubs.  Never saw any cubs, made a 300-350 yard shot and hit it in the spine in the neck.  It dropped like a rock.  I was hunting by myself so the pack out was a lot of fun.  :o

This hillside was COVERED in berry bushes and had LOTS of sign.  Now I know where to go next time.  :)
