Default Got my 2003 Fall bear skull back

The bear I shot in September of 2003 is still at the taxidermist. He said the rug wouldn't be ready for another year or so! But, he did get me the skull back, cleaned and measured. It scored 18 & 11/16"... just a bit smaller than my 2002 black bear that measured 19 & 3/16"

That's a pretty nice bear. I was thrilled when I got my skull back and could get it measured. It's amazing when you open the skull up and see how big they really are. Mine went 20 11/16, 5/16 short of all time (what a bummer) but at least it made the book. Congrats!

I shot them both in Berkshire County, Western Massachusetts. I would post pics, but I cannot seem to get them to upload.
Whenver I go to attach the picture i get the "Page cannot be displayed" page... know anything about that?
Sorry.
