  • 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.:question:

    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!

      $150.00 to $200.00 per foot?
      No habitat, no hunter.

        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.

          Before taking any of my advice for granted on here research the legal ramifications thoroughly I am not the Troopers nor am I the Judge that will be presiding over your case/hearing. Please read the hunting and sportfishing regulations and feel free to interpret their meaning on your own.

            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.
