  • How big is this Black bear?

    Since the season is upon us, and all I can do is look at pictures for now I figured I'd fuel the fire.........oh! how I wish the river was open. Anyhow been showing this picture around and Ive been trying to get an idea on how big he is.So what do you al think? Check out the 7th picture from the left and the last one.

        Clearly four feet..........two in the back and two in the front.:rolleyes: A guide would quickly add.....plus two feet on each side, left side and right side, so in guide measurments it is clearly a eight feet bear.

                Well, you know there is one way to find out...Shoot it next month, ground score it, and report back with pictures and measurements. It's a shooter for sure. I would put it closer to a seven footer than a six and a half footer. 6'10" squared with a 19" melon.

                  No expert here but like you I figured over six and a half foot.HOpefully he comes back this spring.I never did hunt that stand.

                      6fter

                      Almost looks like he has a slight crease in his head, he's definitely a 4/5 year old bear. I would gauge him to square slightly over 6ft and change. He's a good bear for most areas in Alaska, not a skimmpy bear.

                            He's a very good bear but he could still could grow a bit. There is a lot of air under the stomach and the hips could fill out some more. Here's one to compare against. I walked right by this guy as I packed out a slightly smaller one. You can see it wasn't too concerned about me standing right in front of it.

                              now THAT is a nice bear... eating beachgrass, i see

                              gotta say that the bear in the pics didn't strike me as anything special... ears seem big, legs are long and a lot of light shows under the belly.
                              good eater alright, but i would guess him (or her:rolleyes:... head seems a little svelte... hard to say) at <6'.
