Is this a big bear
« on: June 04, 2020, 09:12:51 PM »
Im going through some of my trail camera pictures and this one was on it. I have shot a couple in the area but this is bigger than the ones I have killed. There is really nothing to size it up to but any guesses on weight?

Looking at him, he'll go 300+. Unless that pic is deceiving.  Big bear either way.  Any other pics?

That first bear is a nice bear period, photos can be very deceiving, and a photo from the back end always make them look bigger, but I'd guess that bear could be in the 275-350# range. The second bear photo looks to be about the 100-140# range.
