If you are looking for a nice, tanned black bear skin to put by the fireplace or hang on the wall of your cabin or lodge, we have a selection of heavily furred Canadian black bear skins that have been commercially tanned.  These are all winter hides because they are not allowed to be hunted in the summer.

The Black Bear Skins come with the head and claws.  The hair is 3" to 4" long on average.  The bear skins do not include the skull and is not mounted (with eyes and teeth, etc.).  They lie flat and do not need a backing.  They do not shed.  We usually take more pictures than we post on the website. Please ask if you want to see more pictures or closeups of the hides.

The Mounted Black Bear Rugs come with the head and claws. The head has glass eyes and the skin is mounted on a felt backing.

Black bears around the world are considered to be a threatened species.  The trade in these skins is regulated to ensure that the bears do not face extinction.  Black bear are no longer found in some areas, but are quite plentiful in Canada.  In fact, according to the Globe & Mail, more than 100,000 black bears are thought to live in the Canadian province of Ontario alone.  All of our skins have been legally acquired.  The bear skins come from legal hunting or culling programs.
