Re: How big would you say he is

If in Pa. you can tell the weight by the color and number of tags in each ear if no tags does it have a radio collar if none of anything it most likely is a first year cub and i have seen some cubs in the 3 to 350 lb size.
Not sure on these two bears.

Re: How big would you say he is

Got a kick out of that nfhjr62.
Boyd, this a tough one since there is not a lot to go by for size reference. Don't know the size of the stump, bushes ect. But this looks like a pretty big
black bear. ( Looks like he has a bad case of the green apple trots. )
Without any thing much to reference on other than the bear himself and the
way he moves I'd guess him in the 7foot range. He's a big bear.

350 lb cub??? I feel bad for its mother! Is hard to tell, but he's a good one. Maybe 450-500 lbs. But that's just a guess.

Too gangly, ears too big, head too small, I'd pass.
