Thanks so much guys.  I told the taxidermist not to be afraid to make him look a bit like a fall bear.  Ha Ha.  I can't recall what the width measurement was on the hide but I recall the taxidermist saying that they don't make a form that big so he'll have to build it up.  My wife keeps asking me where we're going to put this thing.  :)

Thanks Dan. I think a bear mount homecoming party will be in order.

That live pic...of a giant, beautiful bear that you ultimately tagged...may be the coolest bear photo I've seen.  Thank you for sharing, and well done!   :tup:

Thanks guys.  Here's another field pic from where we discovered him.  It was texted to me and the image quality isn't that great but you get the idea.

Not sure how I missed this one.  Great bear and write up.  Thanks for sharing.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Not that scoring by any means is the ultimate measure of a trophy but some of you have been asking about the numbers of this bear so thought I'd throw up an update.  The SCI scoring dude did some official measurements last week.  The skull came in at 19 15/16".  For what it's worth, that qualifies this bear for the SCI Gold category.  I'm not yet sure what that means exactly but it does validate that this bear is indeed a once-in-a-lifetime bear.

It means that when you get him back you really need to let me stop in for a look!
