I am concerned about on-going care for a new bear rug and how having a stitched felt backing may make that difficult. With a sewn-on backing, I will not be able to easily oil the back of the skin to keep it supple. Is this an issue for long-term care?

This allowed for just what you suggest. However, most of us know that if you use your bear rug AS A RUG, it will more likely develop bald spots from hair loss than from cracking due to lack of oil.
