I'm new to the site and have read some great information about black bear hunting and one scary taxadermist story so I have a few questions for the folks who know the western slope of colorado.
1. I have finally drawn a bear tag for unit 62 and have been hunting and hiking the area for 4 years since I moved here and know there are bears there but the tag also includes units 64, 65 that I dont know very much about.-- does any one know about good bear populations or areas to devote some scouting time to -just general areas? Any tips for spot and stalk fall stratagies in w. colorado?
2. Would anyone recommend some taxadermy shops for me to research?
I am not concerned with cost and amount of time it will take as I am in quality work. Any good questions to ask a shop?
This is my first year hunting bear and have never had anything ever mounted before. If i am blessed enough to fill my tag and my freezer i would like to have a rug made.
