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!

Wow congrats.  Sounds like a fun hunt.  That country you're hunting looks pretty nice - not too brushy - for the wet side.  Thanks for the great trip story & pic!   :tup: :tup:

Great bear MAGhunter. The only thing that could have made the hunt more exciting is to have that bear run into thick chest-high brush and you have to go look for it.  :yike:

The only thing better than a great bear is a great bear on the road.  :tup:

 I think he's larger than you believe. He's got a super wide head so that's gonna get it up there in score. Let us know when you get it measured as I see a 21" bear, or at least close to that.

21"?  Gadzooks!

I hope it is!  But, I seriously doubt it.

Sure don't come much prettier than that.  I have to keep coming back to look at it again and again and again.
