If that's a fifty gallon drum I would put that bear at 400 plus pounds, pictures are hard to judge by but that is definitely bigger than 350 !! I hope you connect so we get the true weight !! Good luck man  :tup:

6.5ft at least and 350 min.  If that's a 50gallon barrel.  Large pretty beast!  Good luck.  Get em so we can get real measurements!!

The Quinault, and surrounding area, sure produces some behemoths!  Good luck....hopefully that boy doesn't go nocturnal.  I bet he shows back up in the next day or two then you can report some real numbers.   :tup:

Holy moly.  I've yet to lay my eyes on a 400# spring bear.  That'd put him into the 500# range in the Fall. 

Regardless - Good Luck!

I stand by the 200# range.

There are some whopper bears along the coast, alot of those big ones are baited right along the reservation line.  I wish we could still bear bait it looks like a blast.

Thatís a 5í10Ē 185# spring Bear.

Iíve butchered a 7í spring Bear and it went 250#.

It takes a big dog to weigh a ton.

unless that's a 33 gallon drum that bear is very big,  can't wait to see him on the ground. 


I see in the first pic it's a blue 55 gallon drum, he's a toad gonna go 7 foot probably.   55 gallon drums are just shy of 3 feet tall and he towers over it.
