    3 legged one is unique for sure. the pigmentation on his face is strange too !


    not very big bears, but good looking coats on them for sure.

    I thought it wierd his foot was missing
    cant think why it would be missing
    I have a hard time telling how big they are
    Not alot of bears hitting the bait site Its preaty high I think most are still lower and will move up as the weather gets worse

    Im guess from the ground to the back is about 2 ft but dont really know how that figures into size
    We where figuring anything over the second rib in the barrel was good enough.
    That missing leg looks like a old injury but does not seam to bother him

    Hmm, a 3 legged bear, a cinnimon bear, & Is that a wolf in the third pic? Life is good and options appear unique, & plenty.
    I don't know what kind of trail cam your using, but it takes beautiful pictures. Wow!
    If you could get them right next to the bbl, the 2nd ring up is a decent way to judge a shooter, but from a short distance away from it they can look bigger due to depth perception. In that case look at the ears. If they're tall and pointy, & appear to be on top of his head, its a smaller bear, but if they're small, rounded, & on the sides of his head, Shoot.
    Awesome pics. Thanks for posting them!

    In the pic with three foot walking away hes only about a twoo foot from the barrel
    He seams ok border line. Just may have to shoot him just so i can say i shoot a three legged bear. Would like to get a look see if I can figure out what happened.
    Not sure if its a wolf or a yote kind of looks small for a wolf but could be a young one hes tracks are alittle smaller than a apple.
    I think most of the big ones are still down low. this bait site is around 6000 ft
    The camera is a mouletree I could get you the model if you like. Its in a steal box I built to fit it to keep the bears from eating it

    Im guessing that three foot is about 5foot and about 125 lbs about 6-7 years old
    Im guessing the cinnimon to be a bit smaller.
    Not sure If I would shoot either (three foot will be tempting) I wll have a green horn with me tomarrow and he will probably shoot But im sure what ever will taste good.

    Went back to the site for one day
    seams this one who appears to be bigger has run the three legged one off.
    Restocked the site with 100 lbs of dog food and 100 lbs of peaches.
    My buddies will be camping on the site for three day see of we can get on shot.

    That last bear is a definite shooter! Hope you guys drop him.

    Moultrie makes a good cam for the money; I have the I60. Wouldn't use it for deer but it's great for bait stations.
