First bear of 2009. Comparing the bear to me I am guessing it weighs 250-300 lbs. (Im 6'2 and weigh 265; and the bear was my size.) Great start to the season! Going out again on Thursday, I will post more pictures!

From the pic it looks maybe 200-225 live. Head looks a bit small, but still a great bear. Congrats
