After skinning him I came to the conclusion first shot was a clean miss just got lucky we had the wind in our favor and the path the bear took we had a 2nd opportunity

He's right at 6' but what impressed me was this, especially in April.

I was shocked at the amount of fat on my bear that I took on the 16th as well. Must've been 1 1/2" layer on the back

tgomez- Didn't put him on the scale but if he wasn't 300lbs live, he was really knocking on the door.

Boss- Not a unit draw. This one was bought. Went over and hunted on the Quinault.

  That Bear fat makes good boot grease, only problem is you have to leave your boots in the back of the truck because of the smell.

 Nice Bear Monsterbull  :tup:

Called this one in, snuck up behind me, 10 yard shot.  Taxidermist just texted me said older sow by the toothwear, probably 8-10 yr old.
