    Like Steve, I'd be interested in the inches his noggin goes...

    and @Srupp

    I cleaned up the skull roughly, and will do the boil and full clean this weekend. I'll do the proper setup and get it all squared up with pics.

    Here is the head in the flesh. nothing official, just for fun to see:




    unbelievable the jaw muscles on these bears. so much power, it's incredible. i've been really enjoying learning about the bear anatomy as i butcher my way through him. bears have always been one of my favourite animals, this is making me love them even more.

    in fact it would be a great conversation starter with any of the concerned (yourself included). if you can't defend hunting as conservation, and talk about how sustainable a black bear harvest is, the good ethics of it, saving deer, and the food value, then ya, i'd hide my carcass in shame too. why even bother hunting? someone might see you!

    let's see your spring bear. if it's bigger than mine, i'll buy you a beer.
    It is a hell of a bear no doubt. I will most likely go a lifetime without you buying me a beer

    Nice bear!
    The only thing I like as much as trucks, is guns.
