If you are looking for a nice, 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 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 the head and claws. The skin does not include the skull and is not mounted (with eyes and teeth, etc.) They do not shed. We usually take more pictures than we post on the website. Please ask if you want to see more pictures or closeups of the hides.
