This was a bear i took while early season deer hunting last fall. Taken by crossbow at 22 yards.

Driving home:

Pic with my noggin beside for scale, my face is actually closer to the camera so the bear looks smaller than it actually is. Skull green scored 19 5/8 inch. Still in my freezer - plan is to do my own euro mount with it:

Very nice up


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Which one is the bear confused2 laugh

Congrats that is awesome cheers

Help this confused city boy. You just got it back from the taxidermist and it looks like he did a shoulder mount already, I guess not if you are going to do a Euro.
What did the Taxidermist do for you on the bear?

Taxi skins the head and takes measurements. Inside of mount below skin is foam replica skull. I have had skull since he skinned it
