Manitoba Bear hunting

IMG_5677IMG_5676IMG_5672Bear Skulls remove flesh, boil, pressure wash, bleach, score after 90 days, dip to clearcoat, attach to plaque and send to Hunter.. that is a general process of the prep of a Bear skull after it has been harvested. We all know the original skull is not put in mount or rug and a styofoam one is used inplace . Measurements are taken off the original skull or a cast is taken if something unique is wanted to be saved for the mount. Some hunters like a painting done on their skull, or a bear paw print with their pic showing in the paw, and some one it just plain no plaque just hung on the wall. We  had Jeff and Chi from Beijing hunt with us last fall and they requested the bones of the front paw cleaned also as this is a Chinese custom.
