Re: Got My Skull Back! PICS!

Carl, What shows are you talking about? I dont think they do that around here... at least not that I have heard of. From my understanding the 60 day drying period starts after its been cleaned... so now.

    Mike,
    In March we have the Bighorn Sports Show. Guides, products, services, and the trophies. Generally itsdivided into current kill, and prior year harvest. Official BC measurers to score on site. Best of species highest score. Best of show highest percentage of BC minimum. Example Black Bear 21" miniminimum. 22" roughly 110% . Ribbons to 3rd place, Nice buckles for best in species Although I'be heard the fellow making buckles all these years might not be able to continue. Grand Prize has mostly been a rifle. I thought there were others about still. The local one been going since the 60's I think. Thinking on it maybe its down to guides and outfitter stuff. I'll check around and maybe some one will chime in about sport shows that still have head and horn competition.

    He's not jokin Mike. I was ecstatic when I got one big enough for Oregon Book! You dwarfed mine, & yours is easily big enough for Boone & Crockett all time book! That's a BIG B@$+ard!!
    You could easily sweep most any local contest, almost as many state contests, & be a contender for the prizes & $$$.

    Your the MAN Mike! Looks awesome too. Don't worry about the current bright white appearance. The natural oils will eventually turn it more yellowish.

    Great Bear bud. That's a once in a lifetime class critter..... Ofcourse YOU, tend to out do yourself on a pretty consistant basis, so MAYBE, just Maybe there's another Big one out there with your name on it.

    Congratulations on one heck of a bear. That skull should make any hunter happy.

    Getting a rug done too? That's one of the cool things about bear trophies - the skull usually gets done pretty quickly, then the rug comes along later. For a lot more money too...

    Regards, Guy
