MY buddy went down for a quick trip last week ( I had a chance but didn't go) Here is his report:
Thought you might enjoy this exceptional bear I took last week. The skull is 29. The hide squared 11-6 and weighed 127 pounds after field fleshed. The first picture with the hide folded in half gives a real idea of how big this thing was. From nose to back feet is 14. The back foot print was 15 from heel to claw tip. Its forearms at the elbow, after skinning, were a little larger than the diameter of a basketball. Estimated weight is about 1100. In the fall it would have been a 1500 pound bear. Ill bet this one ate ten foot bears for entertainment.
