    This black bear skin has a head and claws. The skin does not include the skull and is not mounted (with eyes and teeth, etc.). They do not shed.

    This skin has nice hair throughout. The face is good and cased while the leather has hairs coming through.

    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, U.S. and Canadian black bear skins that have been commercially tanned. They are all winter hides because they are not allowed to be hunted in the summer.

    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.

    Check to see if black bear skins are permitted for sale in your state before ordering.

    Black bears are covered by CITES and are NOT FOR EXPORT OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES without extensive paperwork and added cost. We are not in a position to export one bear at a time.

    Black Bear (& Other Bear) Products

    To the best of our knowledge, here is what we can and cannot sell in the following states and territories. The words "OK to sell" refers to our being able to ship the item to a buyer in the state. There may be more restrictive regulations prohibiting the re-sale of the bear in the state by the buyer (i.e., you may be able to buy this for your den, but not able to sell it to someone else through your business). Please contact your department of natural resources enforcement department before offering these hides for sale in your state. We will not ship to states where we believe that it is illegal for us to do so. Please see our selection of realistic black bear products as an alternative to real bear parts.

    Please note that you are responsible to ensure that you can legally possess any wildlife products that you buy from us.

    We accept no liability whatsoever for the accuracy of this information. This webpage is a ready reference document for our internal use only. If any errors are found in this list, we would appreciate hearing from you so we can verify the information and update it accordingly.

    We do not address hunting regulations in each state or the sale or raw or untreated hides, skins, or pelts.

    Thank you.

If the parcel is going to another country (e.g., Afghanistan, Iraq or Germany) we cannot ship to them without clearing USFWS first.
