    Nice bear, don't sweat the skull. Even in an area with good genetics, breaking into the book may be the toughest there is. A lot of meat heads out there.

    Like Carl said, don't worry about the skull. 19.5" is still really big!

    A 19.5" black bear is a Great trophy. Don't be bummed out. It's rare to find one bigger. Lots of fawns and calf's will thank you! !
