What is the bear worth to you? Is it yours? does it have sentimental value? Is it wrapped In triple plastic of a thick MIL? does it have the head and/or paws in it? How bad Is the freezer burn? You can Pick up a small black bear a cheep as $100.00{salted}If you really want this particular bear and have the extra time go for it! get ready to do some work........answer some of these questions and we can better help you out.

dave thanks for your reply
the bear has no value to me , was given to me by a friend for a practice specimen. the feet and head(skull) are still attached. ther does not seem to be any apparent freezer burn.it was frozen the day of kill. in double garbage bags.
