I did not have a set of scales on me big enough to weigh him but they say a mature brown bear weighs in at about 1500 lbs. my bear did not have a lot of fat on him so maybe 1300 lbs? He seemed to weigh every bit of that while trying to get him out of the creek.
How the hell do you get a 1300lb bear out of a creek like that??? Surely there had to be some equipment involved. Doesn't look like anything stout enough around there to rig up a block and tackle and I don't think a few dudes tugging on him would do it.
