Got my bear back

Recommended Posts

Do you mind if I ask you the cost? My son and I are going on a bear hunt in Maine this year and he wants a mount if one of us gets lucky. Thank you.                 valoroutdoors.com

850 for shoulder with open mouth,2500 for full, is what I paid for mine, rug was 750.


I've hunted almost everyday of my life.. the rest have been wasted!

I like the sheds incorporated into mount. Nice!

Kpkot... First off, it was a pleasure to meet you at the gathering.  The sheds were a gift from a good friend in NC,  I wanted to incorporate them into this mount somehow and that's what I came up with.

My taxi gave me a break on this bear.. he has done many bears before but never a ny bear.  You are in the ballpark with the pricing your taxi gave you.. there is a lot of work that goes into a preditor mount.

Man I really like how that turned out. Great choice of mount and background! 

I really appreciate your reply here!  I am so glad I was able to meet you today...I never realized that we are neighbors.  Let me know if you ever get a check engine light. I'm always happy to help

Gman... You are spot on with your pricing... I am delighted to meet you in person.  Next time I am down that way I'll let you know... Maybe we can crack a beer together!

Red.. I was in a food coma when I got to the goat... I would have liked to talk more with you.  My taxi said he lost money on my mount and he will re evaluate next seasons pricing... You are right in line though.. take care and I'm sure you are going to have a great upcoming season!

Just curious, since I don’t remember, how many lbs was that bear?

Hey Biz..   We neglected to weigh it.  It was not a monster though!  A hanging scale is on the list of must haves for the shop this year.

awesome mount man. I hope to be fortunate enough to have an opportunity some day. I think I might do a rug instead, but that mount is bad ass. I don't recall the details, was he NY? Weight?

looks great. i think the bear shoulder mounts with front legs are a nice choice for a mount. i'm still dumbfounded that i have not seen a black bear in the wild yet here in NY. they're all over too!
