Any time you are gonna mount a tanned skin you need to rehydrate it first. place your bear in a bucket of water for maybe an hour, then roll in up and place in a refrigerator overnite.
different people will tell you different times to soak and sweat the skin (check the archives for rehydration methods)
but I dont think its really that critical about the time.
call your tannery, ask their reccomended method of re-hydration some tanneries have certain steps to follow for their skins.
