Looks really good. The going price is 250 dollars a foot for life size mounts. And rugs run 175 dollars a foot. So make sure you know how you want your bear done ahead of time. Also make sure the taxidermist is really good at doing bears.
The mount cost 325 per foot (would have been less but it was over 5 foot long)with a regular low base but I went with the high base (to have storage space and to try to keep by boston terrier away).
No scar on the nose simply the way the flash reflected when taking the photos. If you look at the first two photos you can slightly see where it was shot under the eye coming straight at me in brush.
I had to laugh at the photo with the kid stuff in the background . . . I feel ya! Kids really put a damper on the man cave, but you gotta love um. Great pics, hope I didn't offend with the scar question.
