    Looks great! Nice hide on a beautiful bear! Hopefully, I'll have my Brown bear rug down soon.

    Default Cool

    I can imagine you eyed filling that spot for a long time. My bear rug gets thrown in the mail today and I too have high ceilings. I'll have mine bordered with Dall sheep and Sitka Blacktail though.

    It looks good and rugged out well. Congrats!

    Default Thanks guys...

    I'm pretty stoked! Foster's has been great for me for sure. Bear was in great shape though. Watched him kill two of three cubs over two days, and when I whacked him he was stalking two more cubs in an adjacent valley. I had no where else to put him. That's the only spot he'd fit. Happens he squeezed in there nicely.

    Most excellent! Still waiting for mine. Not NEAR as big a critter though. Mines a small interior griz. Nice whitetails.

    Default Very Nice!

    Awesome trophy for the wall!

    Dan has done all my stuff and I have always been more than impressed. He and his wife take the time and work on all those little details that bring these animals back to eternal life!

    Great job!
