How or where did you find that information, if you don't mind me asking?  My son shot a nice boar in the Blues three springs ago and we never did get any info on the tooth that we submitted. I figured the information was never published. Thanks

My last, and only spring bear 8 1/2.
Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

8 1/2 is a pretty good bear really.  Most bears shot are probably much younger.  First bear I ever shot was a 13 year old sow that only had 1 k9 tooth left.  All the others were broke off.

Yep, the skull is much bigger than my first bear that was killed in 2012, fall season.
