Bear Bones
« on: January 10, 2022, 09:36:06 PM »
As I was processing my bear this past fall, I was sorta thrown off by the shape of the humerus bone. It just seemed... wonky. So I kept it to boil and clean with the skull. I'm glad I did! Check it out - my guess is I wasn't the first one to shoot this bear. There are bone fragments inside the obvious cavity, which was filled with cartilage.

(I don't know if the pics will show up, they're not in the preview)

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I bet he was pissed off for a long time! Wonder if the person tracked him and how far and long? They obviously would have known they hit him. Thanks for sharing!

I shot a bear that exact color.  It had an old shotgun "cup and flanges" slug broken up under the skin and in the backstrap.  She was 12.5 years old and the only outward sign of the slug was 3 white hairs at the entry location.

Tough animals indeed
