Got My Skull Back! PICS!

I finally got my Bear skull back. It is pretty evident this guy didnt have too much time left, his K9's are all worn down and broken. Teeth are missing etc.. I dont have the official age back from the Biologist but the Game Warden aged him at over 20. I am happy with how it turned out. He looks pretty gnarley and beat up and some of the bone is decaying.
His Measurements are 9" wide X 13 1/4" Long

    I say they are in the same class. That's one HUGE bear Mike. Did you say that this was your first bear hunting over bait?

    He's good enough to take first in species, and be competitive in the overall at most shows! Can't say for sure, but I think our Bighorn show still gives a rifle in the overall. You should call around could be fun for you, and lots of folks never saw a Black Bear that big. Must be close to when you can officially score him?
