Eli346 - I found the pics of your bear.  You're right, it doesn't look that big.  Pretty amazing stuff.  I would have agreed with your first guess of 19".  What a freak!  That's a good thing, right?
He asked, Do you ever give a short simple answer?  I replied, "Nope."

Well I finally made it to the taxidermist.  He green scored right at 20 6/16".  I'm very happy with that  :IBCOOL:

Lets hope I dont lose too much in the drying stage.  Should be high 19's when all done.  Good enough for washington books!!!

Oh yeah, my 3/4 mount with habitat is gonna be sweet.  One of a kind custom!!!  Cant wait.

 Very cool! My biggest went 20 7/8". Never did or will enter it though. Anything in the 20"+ range in W. WA is a great bear.

 I think you'll be surprised by his score after the 60 day drying period. I don't think they lose that much so he should stay above 20". Good job, great story, and a super bear. Your trophy shots are so much better than mine I'm jealous! We just couldn't seem to move my bear around much on that hillside to really take any pics like yours that really do it justice.

I was fortunate that mine fell over dead in the middle of the road.  Makes it easy for great pics and easy pack out!!
