Thank you all for the good comments. Now just need to find a new taxi as the one I have used in the past has quit due to health problems. Recommendations/suggestions?

Counce Taxidermy in ellensburg specializes in bear rugs and he does his own tanning in house. Not the cheapest but a very good finished product and you won't have to wait years for a tannery to get to your hide

Consult with a taxi. I do know they can do some sewing . Plus with what you describe how would you even be able to rug it? Almost have to do a live mount.
Git this one all cleaned up and even though I am biased he is even prettier than I hoped for, causing some "discussion" between wife and I about rugging him and the cost and need for a second bear rug.

It could be rugged with the blond strip on each side, probably. Maybe a headless rug cut up the back, dying cockroach style. Or a full mount, but then I would be single again for the fourth time.

Blane is a good friend of mine and is pretty much done doing taxidermy work. He pretty much strictly is into his bees and selling honey.

Another bear to add (filled my WA spring bear this year). This one was with my bow while elk hunting in Idaho.

That is cool. Would love the story!

First bear of the year, shot two days before the other one. I passed up a few in this spot too. Finally found a good bear hunting area I think
