    Default Rug Cost

    Was curious as to what the cost is to get a black bear rug done with the skull. Hoping to get a black bear this summer and curious about the price. Thanks in advance for your help.

    It depends on where you get it done, and which taxidermist you use. I suggest you narrow it down to a few taxidermists you're comfortable with, and get their price and preferred skinning/hide prep techniques before heading out to hunt. Here's a link to taxidermists' web sites across the nation (note that it's not all-inclusive, but should give you a place to start):

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice, I'll be with a guide who knows how to skin it and prep it. Was just curious about cost.

    Thanks again.

    Most shops charge $150-$200 per foot like 6xLeech stated but that does not include the skull.

    From what I have seen most shops charge $150-$200 to clean and whiten a bear skull.

    I charge 200 a linear foot on rugs and 125.00 to clean, degrease and whiten a black bear skull.. 150.00 on brown bears.
