Way to go, boys. Thanks for sharing!!

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Here's the information from the biologist...(he had an ear tag)

Tagged 6/9/16 on Pole Ridge above Lake Wenatchee. At the time he weighed 230 pounds and was 175 centimeters long, 70 centimeters at the shoulder. Aged 11 years.

So a year later in a better food year 2 months further along in the feeding season and I'd say he was in the 250 range. Little more then I estimated him at.

He died a long ways from where they tagged him at. Pretty crazy how far they will travel!

Great bear and story. You guys are animals!

If you posted the gps coordinates and said there was another 250 pound bear back there, I wouldn't even think about it unless I had a helicopter. That's a great effort, guys.

Well earned congrats!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
