Any Idea?

I been finding some very large bear tracks while out turkey hunting or out riding ATV. Anyone care to guess how big these bear might be givin the size of the tracks. I understand its just a guess, but its a start and I figure Id share the pics. Thanks!









And the answer to the oldest question of them all...Yes, they do!


I often wonder,Why do people get mad, when you tell them the truth?

Re: Any Idea?

I wish I could remember what I heard Gary Alt say at a speaking engagement one time about bear tracks.

It was something like- "If the track is 3" wide it is a ***lb bear, if it is 4" wide it is a ***lb bear, if it is 5" wide it is a ***lb bear, and if it is 6" wide, get the **ll out of the woods".

It was pretty funny but that sure looks like a real nice bear track to me.
