Finally got the pics from my buddy, we were moose hunting and I sprung for a $250 bear tag but this bear simply would not cooperate with getting shot.....

Any of you guys who actually hunt bear care to guess body weight?

For scale- those logs are 14-16" diameter and he had no problem throwing them around like linkin logs.

I think 350lbs is just about right. A few things large bears have in common is their ears will look too small for their heads and their bellies almost drag on the ground. A bear with both these traits will often be 450+.

Other clue is the height of the top of the back at the shoulder. 14-16 inch logs puts the top of his shoulder at 32-34 inches. A really large bear will push 38-40 inches at the shoulder. 55 gallon barrels that are upright are 33.5 inches high. A 500+ monster is often tall enough he can eat food off the top of the barrel with all 4 legs on the ground and without having to lift his chin.

Yes..... FYI Moose hunting is a lot of work and not for everyone; things get REAL when you have an 1,100lbs animal on the ground.



This is a hind quarter and for scale I'm 6'3 285 lbs
