I thought I would start a small thread with some age data and skull character. I recently got data back for my 2020 bears.

Side by side the boar on the left is significantly smaller than the one on the right. His top front teeth were all missing minus the canines. You can tell by the calcium deposits and the growth that he is an old bear. He was aged at 19 yrs old. The one on the right is significantly larger and measures 18” he is smooth all over and his bone structure is light. He had the longest nose on a bear that I had ever seen. He was only 4 yrs old.

Genetics are crazy! I don’t think a bears head shrinks with age. The 19 yr old bear was just a midget. He had a belly that dragged and his ears had splits in them. He had scars all over his body. Plenty of space between his ears. He had short stalky legs. I was almost certain that I had shot the thug of the mountain.

This years bear had a front jaw that had been broken and grown back. I believe it’s injury would have been absolutely miserable. Also attached is the European reconstruction. Makes for a really unique skull.
