ok guys I'm trying to plan a PWS spring black bear hunt for me a and a couple of buddies. i have lots of questions but that is for another time in another thread. i'm still trying to figure out our expenses and a over all cost for the trip. i thought it would be a good idea to include the price of taxidermy in the per person cost. i doubt all of us will be successful but, i would preffer to have the money budgeted and not spend it . Then spend a buch of money on a hunt and not be able to afford the mount. so whats the average price range i can expect to pay for rug and skull for a an average sized black bear? what have some of u guys paid? any suggestions on taxidermist?
