After what seemed like forever, my bear mount finally arrived from Canada. Here he is in his new home.

Very nice. How long did it take to get mounted? If you don't mind me asking, what did it cost for a full body mount? Is it much more expensive than a shoulder mount?

The bear was taken in early June 2006. The actual mount was done well before November, I know because I was in Saskatchewan then and paid my mount a visit. It didn't arrive until July because of all the government red tape on both sides of the border. The full mount cost 3,000.00 US. It was not my first bear but I couln't resist a full body mount on a Boone & Crockett. My wife was thrilled to say the least. The bear scored exactly 20 inches, just making B&C. He only weighed 315 pounds in June, come the fall I'm sure he'd be pushing 500.

The 12 pointer above him was also taken in Saskatchewan in 2005. Mount was by the same taxidermist, Link Taxidermy, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. They're not cheap but do impecible work.

Cool mount.
I kinda wish I had mounted my B&C bear from 2005. I didn't submit it to B&C but I did for the State book.
