Black Bear Skins

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, 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 the head.  The hair is 3" to 4" long.  The skin does not include the 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.

We have the bear skins in stock and usually ship within one to two days. UPS takes anywhere from 1-5 business days to deliver depending upon how far you are from Niagara Falls, New York.  Shipping and insurance by UPS ground is about US$15.00 to US$25.00 per skin depending upon location.
