although the pictures are not well suited to make a good judgment. the rug seems OK. I like the feet to be a bit fuller. and more naturally shaped.  also I feel that contrasting colors on the two felt layers sets the rug off a bit better. I cannot get a clear view of the nose, or the eyes. the nose is a biggie for me as too many people do not do a bear nose well.
 
 The shoulder mount also does not have great pictures. however in the ones provided the eyes do not have the same focal point. with the bears right eye focus further forward than the left. the nose seems to have nice shape. however the coloration within the nostrils is not correct. I also like the nose to be a bit more toward the gray than just plain black. there is a bit too much lower lip in the front.  although it is within the realm of possibility for a bear to gap its jaw a bit . If that were the case there would also show a bit of lip line on the sides.  keep it up though you are well on your way.

Thanks for the reply, I will try to clean up the pics, the nose on the shoulder mount has a touch of gray in the nostrial, but the photos aren't that great. Thanks again for the reply.

THe left eye in the rug is not in the same angle as the right, so the same in the shoulder mount.
The ears do not look like there is any ear butt to them ?
