I was blessed to capture these images of a large male black bear in the area where I was turkey hunting. The birds did not cooperate so when I left the parking area I took a ride down the road to see if I could see where the birds were hanging out. I didn't find them but saw this big guy coming out from the state land and thru the taximdermist's back yard! I was near my vehicle and the bear at times was 15-20 yards from me, very unconcerned. He was marking his territory as a woman who saw me taking the photos informed me that he has been there before and was observed exhibiting the same behavior. It was an awesome morning! I'm guessing his weight at 325 but I have been told that is low. What's the consensus fellow outdoors men and women?
