@Rainier10
Use that ban hammer, asap!

 :chuckle:
Sorry the @Rainier10 thing didn't work for some reason.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

I wonder if the cat was down below and that is what he stopped to look at before looking back at you??? 
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

No idea. But...we made sure one of us had a rifle with us on our return trip back in the dark, just in case things got a bit dicey...not fun returning to TWO carcasses (bear and deer) in a brushy ravine at night!

That bear is in its absolute prime.  super healthy.  How do you know it's a boar?  :chuckle:

You have to open the mouth REALLY wide, then measure the diameter of the third molar, and divide it by the mass of the extracted bottom right canine, right? Alternately, if you get elbow-deep in gutting the bear and find a baculum floating around, I guess that would clue you in  ;) Think I will mount the baculum alongside the skull when I get it finished  :chuckle:

No, no. Gotta wait for Rainier10 to lift the ban first....sorry  ;)
Oh man, just saw this, I was just messing with you.  Great bear and great story.  Thanks for updating everyone and congrats on a great bear.

I know - just thought I'd flip it back around and send the lynch mob after you, instead! Had to give you a little grief for the fake ban.  :chuckle:

What a great specimen.  Wow.  You better give up bear hunting, and start golfing. :chuckle:

Great bear. Id estimate it at 225 lbs, and a 17-18 range skull.

Great bear!
