    Default Grzzly Mount

    How would you mount a 7 ft bear, a full mount or a rug. I droped it off at Knights

    Congrats,

    If you're taking it down to Florida, I think either would be fine, but if it's going to spend much time up here, I'd go with a rug. A full mount would look pretty small in comparison to some of the real giants that you see all over the place, so you might not be happy with it over time. It'll look like a monster in Florida, though! Just one opinion.

    I have to agree with kahahawai the full mounts with a salmon in the mouth look pretty sweet.

    I'd do a rug and save the money from a full mount for another hunting trip.

    Pedestal head mount, maybe with a fish in its mouth, or a fish in the habitat below the bear.

    It all depends on the hide quality and coloration, in my opinion. If it is peroxide blond with dark legs I would life size it. These are generally the little females. Otherwise you have a rug that will fit on any wall.

    On a personal note, I tend to mount my trophies in a way that helps me remember that particular hunt.

    You know what would look even better than a fish in it's mouth?
