Axe killed bear

Never underestimate the effectiveness of a good hatchet or hawk. This skull is of a very large black bear that was found some years back in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It appears the bear was given a good blow to the skull with a hatchet or hawk about the size of the one in the picture. I'd sure like to know the whole story, wouldn't you?

No way of knowing if the blow was struck while the bear was alive or dead.

Look around the area, if the blow was done while the bear was alive there should be some fouled fruit of the looms laying around some where. Eeker

That is extra cool.
There are lots of neat items to find and adventures to experience in the woods. Mostly small ones but once in a while something special. I would rate this one in the special category. BUT we have to enjoy them all big or small. That is what makes scouting in the woods so much fun.

If a right handed guy was facing a bear. That is about where the blow would land.

Seasoned woodsmen that depend on skill and knowledge to lead them to a successful hunt rather than the crutch of modern technology
