Funny how a animal can fool you on size

    I posted this a few years back. Grandson Jackson spotted this guy under the backyard feeder one year and wanted me to kill him for a euro mount for his bedroom wall, How do you say no to your youngest grandson. We donated the meat to a local food bank program and they were happy as heck with him. Dressed in the 200 lb range on Uncle Lee's scale, he was being stupid and had his mind on a pretty young doe and forgot to look around that day. When I put a bolt thru both lungs he only ran about 25 yards and fell over in a ditch, it took two of us along with my ATV with winch and a chainsaw to move him 50 Yards to where I could get a strap around his antlers and drag him out. The wife was standing on the deck with 91 dialed on the phone because she just knew I was going to flip that Yamaha over backwards on top of me but we survived.

    Yeah I messed up with copy and paste and got pictures mixed up. Computer giving me fits, it kicks me off the internet if it sits for over just a couple minutes. Not sure if it is computer or Modem. Have to keep reseting the wifi for some reason. Bear skull is in another thread.

    That wasn’t sporting you should have hollered at him to make him start running then shot him.

    What I was trying to do with the size fooling you things was look at the thread on what I got from moving the youngest back south and the bear skull. You would think a over 300 lb bear would have a bigger skull. I do remember he was 12+ inches between the ear's. He was a fall bear kill and fat as a butter ball getting ready for a long cold snowy Manitoba winter. Darn computer kept kicking me off the internet over a wifi issue and was resetting every 2 or 3 minutes and would go back to another screen for some reason.
