tanned black bear skin to put by the fireplace or hang on the wall of your
cabin or lodge, we have a selection of heavily furred, U.S. and Canadian black bear skins that have been commercially
tanned. These are all winter hides because they are not allowed to be hunted in the summer.
The Black Bear Skins come with claws and
without claws. Both come with

skull and is not mounted (with eyes and teeth, etc.). The skins average about 4.5
feet long from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail and are about 2
feet wide. They lie flat and do not need a backing. They do not shed.
The Craft Grade skins are soft tanned. They
do not include claws. The legs and heads may have extensive damage or be
missing completely. They are ideal for use in craft projects.
The Mounted Bear Rugs have glass eyes and are
mounted on a felt backing.
