    I just got this falls bear skull back and was wondering if anyone has a good idea for a cool wall mount? I was thinking of something with deer horns or a rock or both. e-mail me or post pictures here if you could.

    Thanks- Steve

    I know you just got it back, but you can have it "dipped" in Bronze, Brass, Copper, Nickel or Pewter for under $200.... All of which I think would look pretty cool!

    Those are cool, I'd still have to figure out how I wanted to mount it though!
    A guy on another site sent me a link to a site called skull hooker, check it out nice clean looking mount.

    I've always been a fan of European Mounts...

    I think they look nice, and it wouldn't take much to make your own with a few power tools, and it would allow you to make it out of whatever wood you choose..some nice Babinga Burl and purple Heart. ohhhh.. NICE :thumbup:

    Keep in mind, whatever mount you choose, it needs to compliment your trophy, and not take anything away from it.

    Some Ideas..(not endorsing the particular products)

    To us Native Americans bears represent strenght, If it was mine I would paint the skull the colors of the four directions with a medicine wheel painted on it's forehead.

    Mount it with a wide open jaw on your front door. Must reach through to grab door handle.
