    That's a good question. I'm not sure. As mentioned earlier we hunt mainly for the meat. I did not measure the length either. But, what I can tell you is that the bear laid to rest a mere 5 yards from the road. We backed the truck up into the ditch and with the tailgate open we just had to lift the bear after field dressing only about 6 inches. Believe me, this bear was extremely difficult to move. My son is quite strong and I'm no push over either, and believe me, we could barely move the bear. We actually had to tie a rope around the neck for grip, because both of us pulling on one arm and one ear, well......we couldn't do it. Too heavy.
    I was also a bit concerned as we hoisted it up for hanging. Didn't know if things might break. Guess I'll have to reinforce the platform in the near future.
