We recently received a black bear mount requiring restoration. This more than 20-year-old mount was the first bear ever taken by this Missouri hunter and holds a special place in his heart. He killed it while bow hunting for elk with his dad. As the living room’s main attraction, this mount has been present for years of family get-togethers and holidays. The bear had accumulated additional injuries over the years, mostly at the hands of four young, rowdy boys. Odds are the youngsters rode on its back from time to time. BBs were also found in the base of the mount. This evidence proved at least some of the damage was a result of multiple living room BB gun ambushes, likely from behind the couch.
