Good Shot!
This is the Hunter's badge of glory, That he protect and tend his quarry, Hunt with honour, as is due, And through the beast to God be true.

Great bear, congrats! I'm a little curious about why his eyes seem to be sunk into his head.?

Most of your big meat heads will look like that. Even without so much hair.  Another sign he's a good mature boar! 

All these dang fine looking spring bear going down should make spring 2013 awful good for you taxidermists!  These big boars are so nicely dressed it would be a shame not to get them mounted!
He asked, Do you ever give a short simple answer?  I replied, "Nope."

Nice job. Bet that 30 minutes you waited felt like an eternity.
Don't forget your spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch.

Yeah, nothing like waiting 30 minutes and not knowing what's coming up in front of your face.  Of course, that's why I love hunting.  Its all about the memories and the extreme adrenaline rush.

Congrats on a great lookin bear!  His teeth look really nice, I wonder if he is a relatively young bear with good genetics!  Nice melon, that's for sure!
