So you have a bear hide that you had plans for, but life got in the way (firstborn child on the way?)... What do you guys do with them?
I wanted to hang my Kodiak bear, with the intentions of a half body mount. He was too rubbed on his butt for a rug, and changing circumstances within the family/budget/priorities left me with a tanned hide full of great memories. He deserved better than hanging on a nail, so this is what my first pass got me:
I have ideas on how to improve the display, but I'm curious of what you guys think? Also, what do you do with the bears you don't rug or mount?
