T-roy, great bear. I am jealous! How about the story of your kill, and stopping by the introduction page too so we know a bit about you? Welcome!

T-roy, give us some measurements on your bear.  Looks to be a good one, above average anyway.

We brought him out in chunks, So no sure measurement on weight but I'd say in the 300d's. The skull will end up in the 19" range. I was working my way down to a stump that I was gonna use as a rest  to take a shot at a 150 pound brown one that was in the bottom of the clear-cut and this one walked out of a gully  just to my right at a  125 yards. At twice the size and half the distance I figured he'd work.

Congrats, thats a nice bear. I'll have to see if I can find my pics of the one I shot last year. He's close to 300lbs, and has a great hide for an aug. bear. Unlike you, I was lucky enough to get mine out whole, but it took over 4 hrs with 2 of us.
