    Shot this monster with my bow in Ontario fall 2010. (Yes it has been at the taxidermist that long! Don't ask.)

    Dressed weight 400lbs, estimated live weight over 450lbs. Haven't had the skull measured for P&Y.

    Man that looks great. I don't know much about bears but that looks and sounds like a huge black bear. I also like that pose.

    I know right? That red cedar is gorgeous. My wife hates it but I think it's awesome.

    That's a pig! Great mount too! If you told your wife what the mount cost that would be the reason she hates it! ;)

    That is freakin' awesome!! I love the whole setup! I usually don't get very excited over animal mounts (they're just too common) but you have something special there.
    Worth the wait I'd say...

    Just curious, how was it delivered? Did you have to go pick it up?
