Hey Guys,
Here are a few photos of a brown phase black bear. I think this is a nice bear. What do you all think?

I'm not really good at guessing bear weights. Most folks think bears are heavier than they really are. He is in pretty good shape for a spring bear. I am going to say around 250 lbs. Do you agree?

Without some frame of reference, it's tough to guess how much he might weigh. Although I am 6'2" and 200lbs, I think he's heavier than 250 as he seems much larger than me.

He'll go over 300 I bet. A friend of mine shot one that weighed 350lbs a few years ago and that bear looks to be close to his size.

Re: Black bear trail cam photos.......

I am going to agree with IdahoCTD on the size. 300 to 350 lbs. And probably closer to 350lbs live weight. I shot a 350lb black bear this past September from 30 yards in the Olympic Mtns of Washington. This bear looks to be of similar size, it's mature and worth hunting IMHO.

Thats a heck of a nice bear! Ive seen few that are larger, but never with that color. I'd be pulling the trigger on that one for sure.

Like the others I would say somewhere between 300-350 lbs.
