How big do you figure those bears are? 8 1/2 foot or so????
Friend of mine went to Russia (Kamchatka Peninsula) a while back and said the bears were pretty thick. I watched the video and there were indeed lots of bears, most in the 7 1/2 ft range but some larger models too. Price was a bit less than an Alaskan hunt.
I watched a vidio of some guys hunting them in Kamchatka in the winter on Alpine snomachines with dogs, these bears were ALL +10' squared and BIGGER that they killed. That's a cool pic! A friend of mine Bob has his mounted like that in his living room, "Vaulted" cielings only. His is 10'3"sq.
Those all look like 11+ footers, that's 11 squared.
When I first opened this tread I thought those were groundhogs
but after a second glance I saw they were just bears...
Reminded me of a hunt I took a fella on once... I believe the scale is about correct, just that the positions are sort of reversed.
Met this fella (hope I have his name correct) at a rifle shoot, he'd never been hunting in the U.S. He's an Italian living in Germany. We managed to get him a ground hog and a few crop damage deer...very nice guy.
