My neighbor is a taxidermist and needed two bases for a couple of Russian bears that he was doing for a customer. This is how one of them turned out. The other was a standing bear and the oak base was much smaller. The customer wanted this bear to be taller for his guests to have a good view of the bear. It was constructed with 2×4s in the center of the base for a strong structure and each corner has biscuit joints with additional wood strips glued and screwed for strength. There are also casters on the bottom.

Very nice looking base. I would guess that anyone with enough money to pay the taxidermist, and you, is going to have a large enough home to display this prize.

How much did he charge to stuff the kid? Looks lifelike.
