Title: Bear Age
Post by: Torrent50 on December 24, 2021, 04:54:33 PM
Just thought I would pass on that it looks like this year's spring bear ages are up.   At least mine was.   Killed on May 21st.  10 year old sow.

My spring bear was aged at 4 years.  More than I expected.  :dunno:    Saved the lower jaw of my deer hoping to get it aged.

No idea..the shooter had a full mount done. Supposedly , skull measurements made it #3 in the state.

If I saw the top bear in that second pic, I would have failed the "bear ID test." That hump is big and deceiving.
