    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.

    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.

    350-400 lbs. It looks like a decent bear to me.

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