    easilly in the 6-1/2 - 7 foot range, 7foot being a stretch but clearly a very nice bear.

    Looking at the head, I would say it is a solid 6 1/2 foot bear probably pushing near the 7' range. Get a bullet in him soon!

    6 1/2 or so but what does matter is he is a shooter!
    If you don't have pictures, it never happened

    They are easier to measure after the shot...

    Hard to tell from the camera angle... but I'd say over 6 1/2... not sure about 7'.

    No doubt about he is mature look like his canines are a bit wore down.He is definitely 6 ft plus and belly dragger.Thanks for sharing.

    Get er done, Good luck!

    It's hard to judge with the layout of the picture but I'm guessing in the 6 1/2' range. Do you have any other pictures or did you only have the camera set to do one at a time? Looks like he's a belly dragger. I'd love to see a side view.

    i think the camera angle is bad...look how big his ears are..most big bears done have those long ears....imo
    They say its unsafe to own a gun, I say its unsafe to have only one!!!

    Agreed, but rest of him looks larger than his ears, IMO anyway.

    What I do see is a mature bear with a beautiful coat. I would not pass him up and would not measure him. These guys seem to roam a lot; so I hope you get a chance to make the harvest.
