Wyoming Bear

Well the spring season is just around the corner for us here.  I have been gathering supplies for the last few months and now it is just a waiting game.  Here is a picture of the bear i got last year can't wait to see what this year brings.  Last year's bear weighed in at 420 pounds and skull was 20 2/8"

That's a beauty of a bear!

That's a beauty of a bear! Congrats!

Love the cinnamon tint to the fur.  I would love to see a rug from that bear.

What did you do with it?  Rug, mount, what?

I got a 1/2 mount

Thank you.  I got a 1/2 mount.  I already had a full body of a bear that i got a few years earlier, so i needed to save room so i went with the 1/2 mount. Well at least i thought it would save room he takes up alot of room.

Very nice!  I like the half

Very nice! 

I like the half mounts for bears.  My cousin's husband has at least 2 done, one as a rug, and one as a half mount.  It's pretty sweet!

That's a great looking bear.

That's a great looking bear. You don't hear many reports of the ones coming out of Wyoming for the spring season.

Congratulations and hope you get another one this year, post back and let us know how you do.

lots of snow

Last spring we got alot of snow that made it tough.  The night that i shot my bear it snow three inches while i sat there waiting for him to come in.  Made for a really cold night but was worth it when this guy came in right before.
