Thanks for the update jtim. About the meat, I have heard ( and have since followed the advice with my bear meat from last year) that it is advised to have the bear meat in a deep freezer for 4 months, to avoid trichinosis. Just something I have heard and thought I would pass on.

Cheers~

Man thats a nice Bear.  What I wouldn't give for some bear sausage!

What is trichinosis.  Proper cooking won't kill what ever it is?

Trich is a possibility, but proper freezing and cooking make it a non issue for me. Usually the tenderloins are eaten without ever seeing a fridge or freezer. Straight to the frying pan.

very nice! and great story........... I know a good butcher that makes some excellent sausage, landjagers and roni... He is in Whatcom county, prolly not far from the taxidermist you most likely took him to.

What position are you going to get him mounted in?  Standing, Walking, on a branch, fishing for Salmon, Open mouth, closed mount?

forgot to mention I have a full mount (standing) of a large chocolate I shot a few years ago. Really think about about where it will go in the house. If ya got a trophy room designated for stuff like that great. I wished that I had made a rug insted, as he just sits in the closet now.

I haven't made a decision yet on the exact position for the mount. For sure a closed mouth and on all fours, maybe his front feet on a rock or log. Something similiar to this mount.

make sure your taxidermists puts wheels on the base.

Mine is standing up with a little lean over as it saves a little space and the only way I could get it in the closet :)

I'll pull it out and take a photo and post it.
