I just recieved the age of my first Minnesota Bear from the Minnesota DNR and was surprised with what I read.
The bear had the following dimensions:
He measured 5'9" from the nose to the base of the tail,
its chest measured 45" around and the estimated weight was 300-350 pounds.
2 1/4" between canines
front pads where just a hair over 5"
What would you have guessed for the age of a bear like this? I figured around 4 and will post the age in a day or so.
