Re: Few Things. Impress Me - This does!!!!

I 'm going to make a few observations here. (It is not my intention to offend anyone , be a smart ass or knowitall. I do have many years of experience
with brown bear .)
This spring bear was taken after he had been out of the den for a while as
evidenced by the "rubbed" spot on the hide just back of the hump and the
thin hair on the flanks. A bear just out of the den will not show these rub marks.
At what point was the hide measured as to what it "squared"? If "squaring"
was done prior to the hide being hung for the photo shoot then an accurate
measure could not be obtained. The head should be skinned out before
measuring. This will add a few inches to the overall length measurement.
The cut for skinning purposes on the back legs should be made from the heel
straight to the bottom side base of the tail. The cut on this bear was made
straight across the belly from leg to leg. When skinned this way the tail ends up being up in the middle of the hide so to speak. This is a questionable
practice called "flapping" (leaves a flap of skin out behind the tail). This is
sometimes done out of ignorance and sometimes done deliberately by guides
to increase the "squared" size of a hide.
The best and most accurate indicator of a bears size is the skull measurement.
As hide measurement is done in the guide industry one man's 10 footer may
be another man's 9 footer.
Gotta run. Will give a run-down on how to properly square a bear hide in a future post on this thread.
BTW, a nice bear any way you look at it.
