how big #2

Hereis what I think or at least hope is the same bear as in how big #1.Wondering if this helps people guess the weight. I also gained a smaller bear and am worried that if this isnt him he may be gone. I will also post pics of the smaller one soon. Thansk for all the help where I hunt in WI we only get a tag every 9 years and I set my goal as a 200# or bigger. As you can probably tell I'm getting nervous about this.

nope it slopes down slowly from the bait so it would have to be in a tree if it was. Also the sow with the cubs is about 1/2 the size of this bear. Thanks for looking closely though.

That bear does look like he's looking right at that black spot. Maybe something was down the slope Think

these two I cant tell if its the smaller/ bigger or a different bear all together. I thought this camera would make it easier to decide which bear to shoot. It just confusing me more, maybee im just to crazy about this.

Bears are hard to judge. You really need to add something for size reference to your bait site.

Not a cub, but not a whopper either. The ears look big. Older bears have bigger heads, and in comparison, the ears would look smaller and further apart.
