From the experts, here are some bear facts for bear hunters: Knowing the proper skinning techniques for a bear can make a great difference in the final product of your bearskin rug or mount. The following guidelines are the most accepted bear skinning methods used by taxidermists. Get your bear hide to a taxidermist or into a freezer right away (within one day in warm weather or two days in cool weather). If you can't, remove as much fat and flesh from the hide as possible and salt it heavily, especially around the face and in the paws. You should use about 20 pounds of salt on an average black bear, 40 pounds on an average grizzly bear, and 80 pounds on an average brown bear. To prevent spoilage, before you go hunting ask your taxidermist to show you how to split the lips and eyelids properly and to turn the ears inside out. Remember to NEVER store or transport raw bearskin rug hides in plastic. This is the fasted way for hair to slip from the hide. Always store raw bear hides in burlap or in game bags in a cool dry place out of the sun.

Finally, if you have any questions regarding legalities for your Country or Territory, please contact your appropriate wildlife departments.
