Thanks all,,,doesnt show well but both ears were split from fighting,the left ear had 2 splits..both all healed up for some time,that was the deciding factor! he had "character".I actually let him walk the first night,he came back the second evening and walked right under my stand and I got a very close up look at him and I watch him the second evening for 20 minutes before I decided he was the one.lots of video footage with the JVC cam.I put it down turned on the spypoint drew and watched my arrow with a lighted knock whistle threw his heart at 20 yds,1/4 away right behind the front shoulder and out his left arm pit..he only went 60 yrds and piled up nose to tail 6'5" .285lbs with 5" front pads the guess on the skull was 18.5 to 19..4 blade Muzzy,29.2" long GT pro hunter arrows,Strothers bow at 56lbs MikeC

Mr C that is a great bear; you should do a full body mount. You were asking for some pictures so here is one I took in 2014. The mount was expensive but I've never regretted the full body mount.

Thanks all Mr Windwalker thats my plan, hence wanting full mount pictures to get ideas thanks, I really like that pose and thats kinda the idea im going for! but looking to the right with both feet down on a log or something to that affect...I was going to do the wood trim like the standing bear in your photo but I like the other style better,,I think mikeC
