    Those are some sad looking teeth on the bear. He must have been around for a while to wear them down like that.

    Default Very old rough bear

    That old guy had a rough life, one of his hind legs had a big dog leg and his snout had been broken. Very tough skin job as most really old critters are. Ears were all split up and he was not as heavy as he probably once was.


    Let both these bears go because of behavior, guessing they were siblings. In several of the photographs the one bear looks like a boar of better size, but the playing on the snow convinced me not to shoot. If they were siblings they were probably 5' bears. I am not interested in shooting anymore that size, but they sure are hard to judge.

    You can see in this picture they were had, but to close in size I believe to be boar and sow thinking about breeding.

    I remember that pic of that gnarled bear from last year. Did you ever find out the age on that one? Great pictures as always.

    Dang Trappperbob, I'll bet that old thing had some bad breath. Here's a 7 footer I took on POW 2 years ago.
