Guess the bears age.
« on: March 24, 2008, 07:20:32 PM »
So letís get the juices flowing for spring bear. Most of you have seen these pics before and may have read the stories, but one thing I didnít post was the ages of these bears.
So I will post these 2006 pics with a little description and you can guess the ages according to WDFW.

1. The first bear I shot in 2006 was a male that field dressed at 120 lbs that came into my distress calls. His pads were almost 4.5 inches across. This was the 3rd week of Aug.


2. My brotherís archery bear was a male that field dressed at 245lbs. The front pads were 4 ĺ inches and squared 6ft with the skull green scored at 18 10/16. This was the second week of Sept.


3. The second bear I killed in 2006 was this female that field dressed at 130lbs. She was about 5ft and had the remains of a fawn in her stomach. This was the 3rd week of Sept.

Hey it's a guess.  Is there a prize? ;)
Why in the hell should I have to press 1 for English?
Economy failure = Too many people spending money they don't have on things they don't need to impress people they don't like.

im going to say 1.  1 1/2


                      2. 7

With pride cometh shame
A man's pride bring him low
Honor shall uphold the humble in spirit
And you know it's true yes.
