    Default Who has experience with Polar Bears?

    I have a Polar Bear rug that is in need of some maintenance. I know there are quite a few taxidermists that have plenty of experience with bears. But, not so many that have done any work on existing Polar Bear rugs.

    If you're a taxidermist with the appropriate experience, or if you have had personal experience with such a guy, I'd appreciate your input.

    I thought Knight's Taxidermy (Anchorage) worked on repairing a polar bear mount in one of the episodes "Mounted in Alaska".

    Thanks for the reply RJ. It was my grandfather's bear. I think it was taken in about 1970? I wouldn't say it's tearing like tissue paper. But there is some cracking/tearing of the hide. And a few claws have come off, which I still have.

    I'll try to get some pics and send you an email tomorrow.
