When was this picture taken? I'm guessing 500lbs + in the picture and could be pushing 650lbs + by the fall depending on food source. This is an absolutely huge bear. I would love to see the size of some of the bruins that this guy was fighting with.
No doubt that bear is huge. It's ears look "really small" because they are mostly gone. His whole head is one big mess from fighting! That bear would make a great trophy, he's got tons of character, and is just plain cool looking if you ask me.
350-400. I shot one last year about the same size. When I walked up to it I could have swore it was 500+. When I checked it in it weighed 318 live weight. Its easy to over estimate. Mine had "very Little" ears as well but this is a GOOD Bear!
I think it's a bit bigger than 350-400 but it's hard to tell from a pic. It has a big head and is just a big framed bear. Look how long it is. A bear like that, with a good food source, can really pack some weight on by hunting season. I would say he's 400+ right now. A trophy by any standard.
