Just got my tooth data back from the 300pound sow shot with NWO in 2017. The bear was aged at 24 years old.
Here teeth sucked!

Unreal. I'll bet a tiny fraction of bears ever hit 20 so that's a rare beast indeed.

Taste was ok...........but seriously it was impossible to chew. Unless you like bear flavored chewing gum.

I know a guy in VA killed 150 lb sow that aged in the early 20's in a remote wilderness area in the mountains. I killed a 100 lb sow last year was 3 years old. You never know with bears how old they are. 20's is probably fairly rare though. Congrats.
Some do. Some don't. I just might...
