2009 california black bear

My 15 y.o sons first bear shot with a 270 win at 40 yds. It has a skull measuered at 20.5 inches. It was so fat we quartered it out and used pack frames to get it out. We were at about 7500 feet in elevation in zone d-4 approx 1.5 miles from camp.

Re 1ST Bear

Congrats on your son's first bear. That is one nice looking trophy! Are you guys doing a mount or anything with it?

Congrats to your son, I'm

Congrats to your son, I'm still waiting on my first bear. I've had a few chances to get one but I'm being very picky. I want a big bear and all black nose to tail. or a color phase. I dont want a mixed color like brown snout and black hide.
