    While we're all waiting for more photos, how about the details? How long were you out?

    I want to be among those to congratulate you. Way to go man! I enjoy hunting bears. The fact your able to find beautiful chunks of wilderness with stable populations of this magnificent predator to match your wits against is magnificent. I've always considered a bear trophy the ultimate symbol of the wilderness. Your a steward of that now too. I hope your future holds many great conversations that build and support our hunting heritage due to this bear.

    I hope you budgeted for the taxidermy of that bruin. 10', ouch!! That or be really good friends with a taxidermist. I suspect you've got one former sheep taxidemist that won't be getting a call. Grin! If you haven't already decided on your taxi, PM me and I'll get you directed.

    Once again.....Congrats!
