Looks great. How much did it weigh? Bow or gun kill? Congrats

nice job on the mount and story sounds exciting as well.If that is his first he has potential for sure.
I took one to be done dec./14. I asked for very similar mount to yours.My bear dressed at 260 as well and I hope it turns out as well as yours.
I read so many people saying a half mount would make it look small but seeing yours makes me happy with my choice of mount.Thx for posting.
