Sorry.  I'm not shooting a sow so cubs suffer.  🙄

He said: "besides a sow with cubs"

If a sow is being closly followed by a boar, its a safe bet no cubs.

I'd still watch to make sure they're a mated pair, then I'd take the boar, but I can't fault his reasoning at all.

Now that a bunch of bears have been inspected anyone with experience get any more info on whether there’s any concern about bringing out a partial pelt such as feet removed or more extra hide cut off. Or is it fine to just have proof of sex and hide on skull?

Well I guess I should’ve read this half an hour ago. I just got mine checked and I did not even think about asking that question. I had the entire hide with everything in tact. It didn’t even take 10 minutes and most of that was trying to get the tooth out. I shot an old dry Sow and the mammary glands I left on the inside of the hide were sufficient for proof of sex. Which is good since I spaced it and reamed out the whole back end with the gut pile like I always do.

‘Complete’ pelt or partial?

I have the entire pelt. The pack out was only like 150 yards and I hope to do a rug if we didn't mess the caping up too much  :chuckle:

Nice work! I don’t get them often, but a short pack is always a gift. Good luck with the pelt being GTG. Charlie has had my bear for like 8 years now and I have pretty much written it off. 🤦🏼‍♂️

Could have been an even shorter pack out if my shot was like an inch or two higher. First shot she was 20 yards from back of parked pickup  :o

I called today and they returned my call.  they were not able to meet me today which is somewhat irritating as I want to get the pelt to a taxidermist, but the Bio is meeting me tomorrow.

I had the same experience. Called the Spokane office on my way through and they said it could be a few hours or maybe not even that day. So they contacted my local office and they called me back. Still couldn’t do it that day but did meet me the next morning. Hopefully once these Covid restrictions are off it’s not such an issue. They told me it was because they were all still working from home or else they would have someone available at the office to do it
