Pretty cool!  It's great to

Pretty cool!  It's great to see guys getting out there and connecting on some great hunts.  Hopefully, my son and I will be hunting bears in the next year or so.  I'd certainly be proud of that bear for my first one.

Thanks for posting!

Congrats

Congrats to your brother. Nice bear. How much did it weigh? Bear is excellent table fare if they have been eating good stuff. What does he plan on doing with it? Shoulder mount? Rug? Great job!

The bear wieghed around 250 pounds (no monster, but nice) ! I personally have never had a bad bear. He is having the back hams smoked, the backstarps turned into steaks, and the rest made into breakfast sausage and spicy italian sausage. As for the hide he is just having it tanned and putting it over the couch.

Thanks again all !

I always liked bear as

I always liked bear as burger.  It's got that greasy taste, which goes well on the grill.....

BTW, 250 lbs is a nice bear.  Maybe not for CO, but it's nice!!!

Great looking bear!

Congrats to your bro. I had a bear tag as well but I never saw one, but they were in our area. The guys I was hunting with saw five or six total in the days we were there. But you know how it goes I had the tag and they didn't. I did see huge piles of bear scat nearly everywhere I walked.
