Guess the bears age. #2
« on: April 18, 2008, 07:46:57 PM »
Since a few people enjoyed the last one I thought I would do it again. Three bears that I know the ages of from F&G's required reporting.
List them
1.
2.
3.
I will try to post the ages Sunday night.
And like last time, there is no prize..sorry. :chuckle:


This was my first bear. I was bear hunting on foot down a river and this guy came off of an island and was going to cross a section of the river. He was about 200 yards down river so I dropped to one knee and put one in his shoulder. Luckily I knew a few guys elk hunting in the area and we were able to take him out by canoe.
The bear was close to 250 gutted and the skull is about 18.5 inches.



This one was ripping stumps between two groups of elk (he split the herd). I snuck through the 12 foot brush along the edge of some thick timber calling with a cow call. The calves from one bunch were animatedly responding and this guy put the stalk on me. Shot him at less then 30 yards. He was just under 250 gutted and his skull is also about 18.5 inches.



This big boar came in to my predator calling at the one hour mark. I was up in a tree and when he was broadside at about 65 yards I put one through his lungs. He weighed 380 gutted and his skull is 20 inches even.

Darn it..I knew someone would eventually ask. They are in various places around the house and shed, but I will try to round them up for a pic or two. Right now I am in the middle of taking pics of pictures. Your blacktail post got my juices flowing and now (when I should be thinking about bears) I am salivating over BTs. :chuckle:
