That is a very good bear. I would say you are looking at 325# or maybe more. It is a shooter for sure. Post some pics if you get him and let us know what he weighs.

That big looks alot like the one i shot 6 years ago that dressed at just over 400. First one might barely make 100.

The first bear is a cub. The second bear is a sow real close to 300 pounds.

Not a cub that still needs mama is it??

How can you tell its a sow??

They have never been there together, it is always a min of 20 minutes between bears on the video.

the big one came in at 9pm last night... keeps coming in earlier every day so far,

This years cub. The mature bear is a big sow. Narrow muzzle more "dainty" facial structure than a boar. Also carries most of it's weight on the hind end while a big boar carries more mass on the chest and front shoulders. I wonder if there is a food source made by humans nearby like a resort dumpster or someone who feeds bears all summer. A tremendous amount of fat for this time of year. Just my opinion.

I'd say over 300 on the second. Doesn't look like a sow to me. I'd put an arrow in it and I haven't shot a sow yet.

    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    • https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4658334/spicer   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.   https://www.apnews.com/5d9107864dca4089a5e23da56fd863e2/Officials:-Trump-adviser-asked-FBI-to-dispute-Russia-reports?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP_Politics
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
