    Yeah I figured you'd keep it but pricing of the options can be prohibitive to some.

    I have a rug and a shoulder mount in my house. And a full in my parents house (wife is really digging in on having it in my house... lol). When I hunt again I will have to do something... probably sell the shoulder or rug to make room.

    I got a couple rugs and 1 small full size bear in the basement.. wife used to be a taxidermist back home and she specialized in bears. I only paid cost. At first I thought it was cool until she started her own business and we had to buy equipment, make rugging tables, etc. Plus I was her cheap labor with skinning, fleshing, putty and paint, setting the form etc.

    I don't care what something cost now, I turn it in......lmao

    I shot this bear in OCT in the Flat Tops here in CO. I think it is going to square around 5'6" or so and it is running me $950 at B&L in Steamboat Springs for a mouth closed, double felt rug. This is my first bear and am pretty happy with the color on him. Should have him back about the end of the Summer 287_1508984913227.jpg

    ....forgot to mention, Mama saw the $475 charge on the card and said "Well , that isn't bad." I will just sock away cash a little at a time to pay the rest ;)
