2020 tooth lookup is up
« on: July 26, 2021, 12:56:36 PM »
Just checked the WDFW tooth lookup site and they have the test results back.  Turns out I shot a 2-year-old bear and a 15-year-old bear.  The bottom teeth of the 15-year old were super worn down -- they were totally flat and had the roots exposed in all of them.  What's the oldest bear anyone has harvested?  Google says Black bears can live up to 30 years in the wild, but most die before they are in their early 20s.

The bear I shot in '99 was 21.5, still have the card from WDFW hanging next to it on the wall.  Picture added for pianoman.

It's a banning offense not to post pics of the animal about which the post is written! Same with gun posts, fishing posts...and hot girlfriend posts.

My oldest is 7, had a buddy that harvested a 23 year old bear.  If you kill a bear over 6 it’s mature for sure.  My bear was 6’6” squares and over 300lbs in the spring.  Skull was 19+.  Head and hide were 80ish lbs and I brought out 90lbs off boned out meat.  That wasn’t counting a completely missing hind quarter ( still don’t know what took that away during the night) and 5-10 lbs loss to blood shot.

Not me but my brother killed one here in WA that was 25 or 26.  At the time, I believe it was one of the top 10 oldest bears ever killed in the state.  This was late 80's or early 90's.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

My information from last year was up a couple months ago. My oldest (2016) was 20. Youngest was a 2-year old on opening day in 2019.

FYI - I used a common sense search term on the Googler to find this:

That seems weird. Maybe call DFW and see if there was a batch of teeth that got sent to the lab late or the lab hasn't processed yet?
