Here's a couple. The LLS didn't get away but the brook trout did. I'm wondering if the trout came from the same place Lumberzac caught his...?

From the picture it looks like it could have been the same spot, but I prefer not to give the location. Unfortunately I gill hooked the trout I caught so I couldn't release it. It did make a great meal the night though.

You can gift me with the claws.....

Actually I could use a tuft of the hair. I lost my Bear Medicine last year up in the Gorge.

Well his claws and hair and rest of his outside are at the taxidermy shop in Monroe, Michigan having a rug made out of him. His meat is in my belly and the rest is in my freezer. If I were only having the head mounted I would gladly send you the claws. I will talk to my taxidermy and find out if a tuft of hair can be removed without damaging the appearance of the rug. Does the hair have to be connected to the skin?

No, just enough to put in the small pouch I wear around my neck of possible.

I had some hair from a brown bear, which was gifted to me by the bear when I was hiking in the West. (She left it on a bush).

I too am very curious on "How Much Did He Weigh?!! He's HUGE !! I too, this year, actually today, have brought a small bear to the taxidermy, to have him full mounted for my living room. Real excited about it as I think he will look beautiful when he is returned in about a year, with the design picked out to mount him. I sure your bear will make an awesome rug.

We were aprox. 4.5 miles from the car so we had to skin and quarter him up. A Bear study person from the DEC had been tracking this Bear and said the last known weight was 450lbs but guessed it to be more buy the time we shot it.The taxidermy said from the size of the hide he weighed around 500lbs.
Thats the only information I have. All I know is I could not walk for two days after hauling that monster out with my son. I can't wait for the rug.
I guess it's true, even a blind squirrel finds a acorn sometimes.

Tremendous bear, Gurn! Muy grande, to say the least.

Funny how far away that car gets when there's a critter to drag. 500 pounds over 4.5 miles? That's a serious carry. Those roast will taste all the better, and your rug will be even more beautiful, when you reminisce over that pack out.

Congrats, again.

Hi Guys, Gurn thats one big brute.Thats 500 lbs dressed.So,actual live weight would be around 600-650.Is that about right?Congratulations!

Also,Serotonin,thats a pretty rainbow.Looks like he`s got a red sugar maple leaf stuck to its side.Are`nt they pretty with their fall threads on?Almost as pretty as those brookies you shared with us earlier.Even the browns are special to me.It does`nt always matter what kind of trout comes to your fly,as long as you get them to the hand and gawk at their beauty.Keepthe pics coming ,its the next best thing to being there.I`ll have to learn how to get some of my ADK trout on this thread.I finally received a digital cam for a present from my wife.Maybe one of you guys out there can coach me.Talk later,Wildbrookies.

It doesn't happen often, and that's ok with me. Sometimes, though, my simple bent stick n' string, a befeathered arrow, a deer, and I have a chance meeting.

It won't make any record books, and that's not why I chose to take to the woods in Autumn. It's just being there, being in the middle of all that beauty, witnessing the things that few will ever see, sucking lung fulls of the things that are rarely smelled, hearing the forest come alive, experiencing Ma Nature at her finest. THAT's why I'm there.

I do appologize in advance for not having washed better prior to this picture being taken.
