Default Bear Skull

I posted this on the big game post area as well, but this forum seems appropriate.
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". I shot both with a rifle, so I didn't hit the 20" B&C minimum, but would have made P&Y if I had used my bow at 18". Oh well, I'm not complaining with these 2!
I could have easily shot them both with the bow too... oh well...

you just have to be patient with taxidermists sometimes they have alot of stuff to do. I turned in my pronghorn onthe 6th of OCT 03 and I just got it back on the 24th of July 04. He had 180 heads to do this fall and about 20 turkeys too. plus about 50 fish and 50 game birds.

Yes... but I cannot seem to get them to upload. I'll try and email them to moderator and see if he can get them on.
