Re: Bear Meets 375 Rum Pics!

Thats a great bear.You will have a hard time besting that one. A friend of mines kid shot one just like it but slightly darker,F&G estimated him at 20 also,in todays paper I noticed. I have put the skulls on a plaque,that sites at about a 30-45 degree angle to the wall.Looks nice for a big nogging like that one.

    Hey Tikka,
    That is a dang good bear. Really avid bear hunter myself. That is the same size as my biggest bear & it is a RUSH!
    Keep up with the photos.
    Thanks, Kirk

    I've been able to see quite a few bear up close and personal and that's a good bear.
    Congratulations.

    PS: considering you were hunting over bait - you sure you had enough gun?

    Since I began reading this forum, you always seem to clean up in the big game department. Awesome Bear Mike!

    I tried looking up the BC Black Bear record for WY, but failed. 22" is up there in pretty limited company. A taxidermist I know has processed 10000+ skills, only one made the 21" mark. Canadian guide I know well has been shooting 50 bears a year for 1 over 21". Good call on the life size. What went through your mind when he got up? Seriously congratulations, and thanks for sharing the story.
