I don't know mate,probably not carbon dating or whatever,maybe he just goes off the creatures extinction dates?He is an old guy lives in the boonies in Alaska,into grizzly bear hunting.

 

How much is he worth

I think he made it for himself mate,difficult to value something like that,hard to price as its a bespoke piece,but what a fantastic display piece in the house that would make.
