What a beautiful bear!! The good Lord willing, maybe I'll get to do it one time in my life. Any idea of what an estimated weight would be for a bear that size?

I don't think that monster needs a pedestal to look huge. We all have our favorites in the animal kingdom, but to me nothing is as impressive as a large bear mount. A big moose or bison mount is impressive, but if you go into a trophy room it is the carnivore that grabs ones attention. He has the ability to quickly make you look like a train ran you over.

One of my fondest memories is what we guessed to be over an 8' interior grizzly that we blew the sneak on running up hill through the alders. The long blonde spring coat and him stretching it out like and Olympic sprinter for what had to be a half mile steep uphill run. I hope I never forget it and I am at the age now where I am glad he got away. But, at the time I was cussing my impatience for not looking around more on the last 100 yards of the approach.

Congrats on a magnificent trophy bear!

Bears are not weighed. Skull size is the determining metric, often with the hide square.

A large boar can eclipse 1000 pounds. In extreme cases they can get up to 1500. https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=brownbear.trivia#:~:text=Kodiak%20bears%20are%20the%20largest,and%2030%25%20lighter%20than%
