    What an opportunity! Congrats on the beautiful bruin! I am just trying everything I can to get them to find my bait site. Same basic place I have baited 5 years in the past, although I have moved it slightly because of increased pressure. Never had it go this long without getting hit....

      Thanks for clarifying. I can assure you black bear can taste like veal and berry bears are prime. I've never tasted a brownie and sounds like that's not a bad thing.....
      I come home with an honestly earned feeling that something good has taken place. It makes no difference whether I got anything, it has to do with how the day was spent. Fred Bear

        Hard to beat a berry bear for sure. I had to try brownie and tried a young sow brownie. Edible, but....(see above). I would imagine a "special" marinade to help cut the grease might help.
        Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

            I didn't think to ask Fish and Game on the age and they didn't tell me. But they did pull a tooth...
            You should be able to call Fish and Game in a year from now and get the age on him. They do them in batches. It was a year for my black bear (6 year old), and a year for my Arctic Grizz (19 year old). It will be neat for you to revive this thread in a year with the age! Congrats and nice bear!

                      ckrietel,

                      When you call F&G you need the number from the sealing tag.

                        I had the bear scored with Pope & Young. The official measurement after the 60 day drying period was 26-6/16. They told me ranks #34. I haven't checked with Fish and Game on the age yet. They probably don't have it done yet. The picture below is this bear's skull with a skull from a 5'6" black bear in his mouth.

                          Congrats on a really nice bear way to get it done with archery equipment that had to get the adrenaline going.

                                Here is the trail cam picture of a boar with a sow wearing a collar from 2013. I'm pretty confident those are the same two bears from my hunt...
