Finally Found The Bears
« on: April 25, 2017, 07:06:25 PM »
I recently activated my real estate license and was out today taking pictures of a 252 ac. property I am listing tomorrow. We went on the north side of a ridge on the property and started running in to bear crap ALL over the place. We went in the next drainage and came upon this bear. Notice the grass growing in this huge meadow. Bear heaven. Of course he does not allow hunting.  I need to win the lotto so I can buy it!!

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I am practicing my field judging.  Please help me out.

The bear appears fairly large.  Large poo, large neck, small ears, ears set apart, possible fold in the middle of the head.
Legs are a bit long, so not super fat.
The back hips seem wider than the front and that there is more weight in the rear.  Possibly female.


The bear seems like a shooter to me (after making sure that there are no cubs, of course).

Size-wise, I would have guessed male.  Hips and rear weight-wise, I guess female.

What are your thoughts? 



(For our next game, we will guess the make and caliber of the side arm in the one picture  :chuckle: )

Nice size boar...Not a Monster but really nice. The poo in the pics might not be from this bear as the bear was over a ridge and in a canyon away from the poo.

That looks like about a 300 pound boar, I'd have to pass and wait for a big Bear.  If the property held any big bears I'd buy it with cash money. I'm not impressed.

In case you have any doubts, yes, that is what sarcasm looks like. Dead bear without hesitation.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I'm not!

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

That is the owner and I think he was carrying the 10mm that day. He's got a 9mm, .40 and a .45 also. Here is a picture of "Rudy"   He would come to butch's house and get in the bird feeder.. Also a few bucks from his feeder and elk in his field.
Gotta go buy a lotto ticket.
