Congrats Gary. What a beautiful bear. Think I'd have to call that the "Redemption" bear. Glad it all worked out.

Excellent narrative and thanks for posting the "extra" pictures! I'll look at all the pictures anyone wants to post! [Smile] The second one really shows the size of the body well.

Congratulations on a fine bear. [thumbsup]

Bears can attack people- although fewer people have been killed by bears than in all WWI and WWII combined.

Congratulations, Gary! Beautiful animal.

What (if any) taxidermy plans do you have for your trophy?

Thank you everyone for the kind words. By the way, the bow was a 60" Tall Tines, 48# @28". Wilderness Custom Arrow with a Zwickey Delta two blade. Obviously a complete pass through.

My wife originally asked that I not shoot too big of a bear. ??? Oh, AND I would prefer a Black bear as it will match our decore better. Ok dear, whatever you want.

I guess I didn't say that he squared a measured 6' 10+". I prefer "almost" or "just shy of 7 feet", but Ryan is stickler for honesty. 😉

I have already talked to a taxidermist and as soon as he gets back I will take it to him. We are getting rug made. I have wanted one for a long time.

Thanks Dan and Snag. It was a tremendous gift. RYAN said, "that bear had your name written all over it".

Stickflinger is a very a special place.
Brad, I know there are at least three monsters waiting for you. Two were seen by Pat this past week.

Just gotta have patience, man.
