So what's the measurements? Sounds like a stud.

So he is 6'3" long so 75" and the rug is 45 " wide behind the shoulders . His skull scored 19 6/8 and he tooth aged at 19.5 years old . I killed him with a stick bow when I was 18 !

It's also very likely your girth was bigger then 45". I'd guess the taxi probably trimmed some or cleaned it up? Be interesting to hear from a taxi here to hear what kind of girth loss (or gain?) might be expected during a rug.

So by the scale he was close to 400 depending on what he trimed off at the taxi

So that's 50-51" which is 385-400.

Based on your hanging weight I'd say that's closer.

So would that 400# bear yield about 50# of meat?

I'd guess between 70-90 raw?

Depends on how long ago it was! Adam can't even remember exactly how much he got last year off his bear...😂 he thinks 35 ish

I think it probably matters with season too, all that extra weight they put on in mostly fat.

I think the chart is probably the most accurate.
