Someone is going to like it and the budget can help make a decision too.Thanks for your thoughts. I was thinking if a person has killed a couple bears already and already has say a rug or a lidesize mount and then kills a not so big bear and wants to display it but not pay for the price of a lifesize or not take up the room as a rug does. But definitely agree it would look better in a rustic/cabin type man cave with a binch of other mounts and vintage hunting items.
Yes thats right except the eyes are not fully open in an alert position. The eyes are open to a degree but are relaxed because the muscles are not working which causes the "dead" look.I’ve seen the pack mounts before and it’s a likeable style. As far as the eyes open or closed, I thought taxidermy was making it look realistic. I’ve never walked upon, or packed out a dead animal that had it’s eyes closed. They stay open.
