Thanks, I never did weigh it but the hide squared 5 feet. Im guessing the age to be around 3 years, it was a spring bear so there wasn't much for fat on him.

Thanks, I shot it near Rocky MT. Alberta on a self guided hunt, but theres lots of outfitters in the northern part of the province if you wanted to go with a guide.
