Hi gang, I am hoping someone can help me out with this. In the past I mounted a number of different animals such as coyotes and bobcats. I’ve never done many bear but have done a few that were half mounts and were all small bear in the 90 to 120 pound range which didn't create much problem. Well this year I got a few in to do (which have a little more size to them) and I got into them and I’m having some frustration with them. I measured the carcasses to get the form size and now I seem to have areas that seem to have too much skin/hide that I can’t get rid of. One of the areas that seems to be worst is between the jaw and the shoulders but also have some on the legs. I’ve cut relief cuts in the pits of the shoulders but the hide don’t seem to go that direction. To add to my confusion I Google images of bears with mange because it allows me to see the hide of the bear and I notice that bears a wrinkly critters. So how am I supposed to/how do you handle this?
