    Default how big?

    This bear is using my driveway. I haven't seen him yet but it does pass by.. on a very regular basis. This shot was taken last october after one of the first snows. I have been using this photo on my business cards, letterhead, etc.
    Any idea how big this bear might be? The gun is a Ruger SBH with 5 1/2 " barrel..
    I'm not very good at judging these things.. for all I know it just has big feet....
    I'd enjoy your comments...

    Warning: In no way shape or form am I an expert nor do I hold myself as such. That said I believe they take the distance accross the front pad and add 1 to get an approximation of square footage. So if his pad is 19 inches accross add 1 and you have a 20 foot bear. I would shoot that one between dive bombings from the pterodactyls.
