The odds are your skull will still be fine for B&C measurement. Bear are very thick boned and the skull can take a lot of abuse. You may get a tiny bit more shrinkage than using other methods but unless your bears measurements are hovering around the minimum scores it shouldn't matter much. Let us know how the official B&C measurement comes out.....

The following pictures are examples of what your skull should look like prior to official measurement...

that skull looks great even the stuff inside the nose is still intact, somebody did a great job on it.

I don't think I could hunt bear with a pistol I am a horrible shot with one, I think I will stick to my rifle or even a bow.

The Boone and Crockett Club produces two books. One is the "Awards" Book and the other is the "Records of North American Big Game," which is the "All Time" Book. You can be included in both books if you reach the "All Time" minimum score. You can be included in the "Awards" book if it doesn't...

The "Awards" category measurement minimum for Black Bear is 20.

The "All Time" minimum for Black Bear is 21.

Shrinkage can be a very difficult occurrence to predict. Your bear measures 21 2/16 green. In my opinion it's going to be very tight for you to make the qualifying "All Time" score... Keep your fingers crossed. I think you're easily "In the bag" for at least the "Awards" book... and that too is a recognition you could be extremely proud of..

Either book inclusion would permit you to lay claim to being recognized as having a trophy included in the Boone and Crockett Book... Not many people can make such a claim..... no small feat when we realize thousands of Black Bear are taken every year..

Let us know when a decision is made... We're pullin' for ya!!

this thing started at 21 5/16 if I miss the all time by 1/16 I will be heart broken.
like you said I will be happy with both books or just one, to me it's a trophy even if there were no books. I will let everyone know in mid november what happens.

Did the officiall Boone and Crocket score yesterday and ended up with 21 1/16, made it by the skin of my teeth. It shrank a quarter inch but I am still happy my name will go in the all time book, now I need to go for number 1, Ha.
next year maybe I will find a elk big enough to go in.

Tried to edit the title of this topic to say that I made it but have no idea how.

Nice!
They killed a black bear in my area last Monday (PA week long archery bear season) that weighed 744lbs field dressed, with an estimated live weight of 875lbs! Supposedly the 2nd heaviest bruin killed by a hunter in the world! We grow them big here in PA!
I'm sure that one will make the book.
Our 3 day rifle season started yesterday here. The local check station had three bruins brought in over 500lbs.
