My Bear Skin Rug

Postby scopolamine » Tue Nov 05, 2013 5:22 pm

I was recently reunited with my bear. It's always nerve racking, waiting to see what the artist has done with your hard fought for trophy. I feel disconnected, like the hunt truly isn’t finished, until I get my animals back. I miss them even more if I’ve finished eating the critter being mounted, and with my bear, that’s the case. We cooked the last of the bear at my men’s bible study class, so I’ve been anxiously awaiting this morning’s visit to Evelyn at Billington Ranch Taxidermy.

I discovered her through an exhaustive internet search of Texas taxidermists with experience mounting bears. I ran across her website http://www.billingtonranchtaxidermy.com/. I recognized her name from this article, which I highly suggest you take a look at if you want to do your own European mounts: http://www.hidetanning.net/SkullCleaning.html

I’m really happy with the detail around the eyes and nose, and her ability to work around some pretty severe scars the old boy earned through battling other bears on Prince of Wales Island.

A bear we got in California came back with much rougher fur, this bear was smooth and soft and it took about 2 seconds for my boys to jump on it. If you need a bear done, I highly recommend Billington Ranch Taxidermy.


Here's the hunt story if you are interested: http://wp.me/p3bCKM-4H [/quote]

Looks real nice, a bear is on my bucket list.
I went into the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
