Beautiful bears, folks. Thanks for the sharing the pics and for the ideas!

Here is the wall I'm hoping to fit the bear on. We'll see... haha

My dad went in to pay a deposit on a deer mount and checked on my bear. I'm picking it up tomorrow, but here is a pic of it all done. I'm not sure it's going to fit on the wall I was planning on putting it on.  :yike:

Tubbs said this bear was an absolute linebacker and was super wide -- between 250-300lb sow. I feel like it weighed more than that, but I have no real way of knowing. It took me 3.5 full freighter pack loads to get it out by myself and each pack was heavy enough to tip me over if I stumbled or tried to sit down to rest.

That is nice :tup:
Very wide indeed - was her belly dragging the ground when she walked?

That's not something I noticed while watching her wander through the brush before I pinched the trigger...

But I do remember how dense the fat was on her.. talk about getting greasy cleaning an animal..

Got the bear home from Tubbs on Friday. Tried to mock it up (alone..) on the pine wall and I don't think it's going to fit well enough with my two year old lab wandering around... I think I've got a good spot for it, but that spot had been reserved for my dad's alaskan moose.

Tubbs put a nice sturdy ring on the underside of the head and advised me to put that on a stud and then swing the bear in whatever direction I wanted and just put finishing nail or something behind the paws to hold the arms/legs out how I want them.

Will post back again when it's on the wall, because I like sharing my bear with you all  :rolleyes:

I'm going to replace the carpet in the next year or so. But it's thick and cushy and I love laying on it while I've got it  :chuckle: I for some reason enjoy the color against all of the brown and grey in my house!
