I'll take a break from the bathroom remodel to brag on my buddy. He just called with the news that this years 20A bear or should I say H_O_G, he got was bigger than we thought. The skull as measured by F&G went 20 3/8"! And the taxidermist measured the hide out at an even 7'!
HOLY GUACAMOLE! Looking at the 2000 Alaskan Bowhunters Records Book there are only about 3 bears listed at over 20" taken from interior AK. How do you say WOWSA!
Taken with his trusty Hoyt at 20 yards, the bruiser died within sight. I'll have to get permission to post photos.
Alright, back to work.
