  1. #1

    Default Brown Bear fur quality

    Which hide do you prefer...Spring bear (no rubs), mid summer (interior bear), or Fall bear?

    Fall bear! Nice and lush (and i'm talking October, not August).

    No guns: no peace. No safety!

    If you're concerned about fur quality, why would you even list "summer" as an option?????
    Late fall - fur is very even & no rubs.

    I have not seen a summer coat on a Brown Bear but people raise Rex rabbits for a reason...they don't have the long guard hairs and their pelt resembles velvet. Wondering if the summer is similar to that.

    look for pics of bears catching salmon - those are summer bears. Even the best coats look sort of mangey.

    1st Choice "Spring", 2nd Choice "Fall"......... as far as I am concerned, summer isn't even an option!
    Be safe, and enjoy your time outdoors!
