hello all.
as many of you know I got my first black bear this spring and I just got around to boiling it today. it's mostly done now I just have it sitting out so that bugs can do any remaining cleanup.

however now I find myself unable to decide what to do with it.

first of all all of the molars came loose during boiling, I would like them all to remain with the skull, what's the best way to re-attach them? super glue?

also, I'm not sure if I want to bleach it or have it camo dipped, there is a local business that I've seen has done a couple deer mounts and looked pretty neat so I'm kindof considering that even though it's just a little bit tacky.

something like this

so my question is what do y'all do with your bear skulls and is there any way to incorporate the lower jaw with any of it?

I just used regular Elmers glue on the teeth. This was killed in 1998, they are still tight. I bleached mine and have it setting with the lower jaw in place. If you pick it up they come apart into 2 pieces. It has been 15 years, and it has yellowed some over time. I guess it wouldn't hurt for me to re-bleach mine.

I haven't harvested a bear but I've mounted several euripian mounts deer and goats.
That camo look is sharp for me it would depend on my check book.

I would make it the centerpiece of a chandelier and put a bulb inside.

Teeth go back in with Super Glue. Bleach it and set it out on the bookshelf.
