I just finished cleaning up the skull and jaw from my spring bear I killed at the end of April and wanted to share a few more pictures. In this "as he lay" shot if you look close you can see his lower jaw is slightly askew.


Here is what it looks like now. It had been broken on both sides at some point in time!



In this shot you can see he had a big scar across his nose (right side) and I'm betting he got it and the broken jaw by a bite from a larger boar at some point in time.


He was no worse for wear when I killed him though... Fat as happy as a spring bear could ever want to be. Bears are tough!!
