    I'd get him mounted coming over a log,or peeking out of a hole.
    What was he doing prior to you shooting him?

      I have a badger bomber hat. Super warm and a lot of girls come up and rub it. Love to see badger mounts with the claws bared. Maybe one with the head and front paws coming out of the hole, and use the hide for something else.

        Next bear I get, I’m thinking of making a rug out of it and have the mouth shut like a trap that catches burglar’s feet. Imagine 3 in the morning, you break into a house and something clamps down on your foot and you look down to see this massive bear head!!

          Make a paste of Alum and Kosher salt (not iodized salt) After you have the hide scraped clean of flesh and membrane stretch it on a hoop or nail it to a board (flesh out) lay about 3/4 of an inch thick of Alum/salt paste on the flesh and put it aside in a dry dark place for a week or so. Once dried you have a tawed hide suitable for a rug. I did this with sheep, goat and rabbit hides and it works pretty good.

            My buddy ran one over with his car and then turned the hide into a longbow arrow quiver. It was pretty cool.

                I would highly recommend creating a loin cloth from the badger fur. Tarzan did this years ago, and he can swing form trees. Best wishes!
