I was able to chase a few around myself up there last month. TOO much fun.
Any idea on the skull or hide size?
Bear hunting the coast is an absolute blast! The quality of the bears is incredible.
I don't have final measurements of the skull yet, I had the taxidermist remove it from the hide for AK Fish and Game sealing.
My rough measurement of the hide was right around 7 1/2 feet nose to tail. My bear's hide from this year was a 7'2" and the skull measured 19 6/8, so I'm hoping Holly's breaks 20".
I was not expecting the first bear to be this big. I normally have to pass a few dinks to see a good boar like this.
