Cool skull mount from my Muzzy Bear
« on: March 03, 2024, 08:42:57 AM »
I picked up my euro bear from Joel at Blackriver. I think this is a pretty cool way to display one. This was my first bear and taken with my muzzle loader.

That turned out Awesome. I may do the same with a bear taken with my muzzleloader that I couldnít find for 11 hours. The hide is taking up space in my freezer and Itís a shame because it was a nice blondish color but I have a bad feeling when I thaw the hide out the hair will slip. I tried fleshing as much of the green slime that had already started to form before freezing but i donít have high hopes. He was bloating and the meat on the ground side had already spoiled by the time I found him in the hawthorn thicket. Glad I have a plan b now

Very nice display for sure. Congrats on the harvest. Harvesting a bear with a muzzleloader is a very cool experience. I did my first bear muzzy harvest last year too. Very fun to do something a little different in harvesting an animal. As well as for a mount. Think you did a great choice with the display. Taxidermist did a great job.
Maturity is when you have the power to destroy someone who did you wrong but instead you breathe, walk away, and let life take care of them.

Good eye, one was damaged/broken and unusable, so to keep it proportional he held two out. I may try to work them into a hatband

I really like the shape of the display plaque - the square or rectangle mounting boards just don't seem to look right to me with a euro mount.  :tup:
