Talking Giant Black Bear

Hey Everyone...
I took this giant bear in Southern Oregon during archery elk. He came in to a cow call. I shot him at 18 yards from the ground. He weighed 429, measured 7,3' and his skull right now (45 days out) is 21 9/16. He is the new pending state archery record...fingers are crossed.
