    Default Just picked up my 2007 Grizz.

    Well here is my stepson and I hauling it out.

    I was ill and not feeling good,but I took him duck hunitng and well it went south pretty quick.

    We where soaked and miserable,but I had fun.And he has never been hunting in his life till then,other than birds.I'll nevr forget all the fun I had even tho I wasnt feeling good.

    And a year later at my Taxidermist studio.

    I love what he did.Even the nose looks wet.



    And on the wall finally.Man he has the longest hair Ive seen yet which you just cant tell from the pictures.Not bad for a September bear.

    Taxidermist did a great job.
    I remember your original post when you guys took the bear. He sure had(has) beautiful coloration.

    Thanks James.And to answer you,incase you never read my post from last year.
    This bear was laying down over a Moose kill and had it buried.When I showed up (duck hunting) I dang near walked up on it and saw it standing there or so I thought with the grass blowing in the wind his saddle was sticking above that and I thought wow a big bear.Anyhow afater a 82 mile round trip to get a rifle.Anyhow instead of a 6 foot or larger bear this one came out at 5'5" and 6' across, young bear here but perfect size for the wall.

    And Vance thanks alot bud.He cleaned up well after rolling around on that dead Moose whew!

    Ha! hey Vince it aint happening.The boys where in the truck and momma wasnt having nothing to do with that bear once it eye-balled her.In-fact the Camcorder died on us as I was going to shoot,then the little camera has a viedo take on it also and the batteries where dead.
    So after that bear was shot I had to dig thru my gang box for batteries.I'll have to swing by Charlies Vince and get an early peek.Where's the before pictures from the field? And thanks to you also Tim I do appreciate that. Daniel
