for the bear guys *Pics*

22 posts in this topic

My family has a couple of trail cams out on our hunting property and we have gotten a few bears on camera the last few years. None of us have applied for a tag or hunted bear before...

so here are a couple pics of the bigger bears we have on our cams but I don't know if its the same one, it could be. Any idea how big this Bear is? Thanks and enjoy!

Big head on that first one! Not sure how big he is, but he'll be 100 lbs heavier by this fall, amazing how skinny he is.

Hard to say is they're the same bear or not.

yep it is! Someday I'll have to get a bear tag, these bears are barely inside the no-quota area.

I don't think the bear in the first photo is a "big" bear, I'd guess it's average size for an adult, or even a bit below average size. There's a few reasons for this but the most obvious are the "long" legs and no sag in the belly -- sure signs that it is not a big bear. Also, the ears look big and close together, but on a big bear the ears should look small and far apart. And when looking at the rear haunches they look small and squarish, but on a big bear they would be much bigger and more rounded or humped. A nice looking bear for sure and a great pic.

Just a guess but I'd say they're different bears, their color looks different - could be from the camera or the light or something like that, but I'd guess they're different bears.

I've occasionally got bear pics on my trail cams but they're all been at night so they're not that great of pics. I like your daylight pics.

If they are "inside" the "no-quota" area you don't need to apply, just go to an els agent and buy a liscense and put some bait out in mid-august.....In the no quota area you can take up to two bears per season too!!

Correct, no appl needed and actually you can get 2 in no quota area. I agree with the Jerker, don't think it's that big of a bear. It may have a head for the books tthough.

either one would be in my crockpot. The head on the first one has some shadowing that might make it appear larger than it is. I took a bear that was a good pumpkin at 19 3/8 but the rear haunches were dissproportionate to the rest of the body indication to me anyway that he was engaged in some heavy duty mating in may/june an had'nt replenished it's fat reserves yet. That could be the case here cause the berries are just comeing ripe up here. Just my two cents boar

    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
