My 2011 bears age

Checked the Colorado age results a few days ago and the bear I got last fall turned out to be 13 yrs old. I guess that's pretty good since I was told by the CDOW last fall that the average age of harvested bears was 5 yrs or less.

Wow, nice job. That is an old bugger the oldest I have known of was 15 and he was nowhere as pretty as your bear.

Like Quinton says, kinda cool

Like Quinton says, kinda cool to get info like that.  Whether it's a banded bird, radio collared animal, whatever, it's neat to have that little glimpse into their life.  Amazing that your bear got that old.  Seen alot in it's lifetime, I bet.
