My wife shot a great bear this past weekend and is looking examples of pedestal mounts and 1/2 mounts. Any pictures and names of forms used for the mount would be appreciated.
Buddy of mine has a really neat one. Half body mount with an aspen trunk and a big wasp nest that the bear is pawing at. Don’t have a picture but it’s really neat.
Might want to ask your taxidermist for pics that he has done over the years. One, you see the quality of his work and two she can see all the different mounts. I like half body mounts,but, I think a rug that can be used is a nice way to go.
Sorry, don’t know the form name.
Half wall mount. I'm heading to the UP next week for the last season and maybe some deer hunting too.

Imperial Taxidermy in Caldwell, Id. just got me my 1/2 life size back last week to me and I love it. 19 12/16" P&Y. I believe the form was Research Mannikins. My whole family loves it.
My favorite 1/2 Mount

No suggestions, but congrats to your wife on her bear!
Here’s mine. Small bear but I like the mount..
When you run out or room ...tan and hang
Go look at the Safari Room taxidermy in Medford Wisconsin. Husband wife team who do awesome work. Did a pedestal wall mount bear for me and a fantastic elk pedestal.
I'll second the safari room. Jim and Brenda do some really good work. I don't think there website is working any longer but they do have a Facebook page
