Huge bear off my trail cam pics.....

Here is the big bear that left those turds I showed earlier. My wife chose to hunt this one instead of the other smaller bear. I restocked the bait with about 300 pds of meat scrapes and tried to sit the bait Sat. and Sun but the winds where wierd in there this weekend. Sun would go behind clouds and the wind would blow down canyon then come out and get warm and blow up the canyon. Swirled both nights. We are going to go back up Tomorrow night then she took PTO time off work for Fri Sat and she is off Sun and Mon. So will sit that bait for 4 nights and I believe he will show up I hope. But here is the pic.
What do you think size wise he would go?

Wow, what a chunk, better watch out, that guy is going to pack off all your bait and then say cheese for the camera!

I imagine he goes at least 400 lbs.

Nice looking bear supersider !! Looks like it has a real nice hide too. What part of the country you live in? I hope you get a chance at it. Brad

Brad I live in Idaho. First year with these trail cams and it is pretty cool to have them. I took a bear on May 7th. A small bear around 5'6". My wife wants a bear so she wants this one. So will have to hope we can get him for her. he is pretty excited over seeing him in the pics.

He's got a monster melon on him! Nice & thick too. Kindof on the short side, but i'm gonna guess mid to high 300's...
Maybe more... but no less! Hard to tell.
Let us know when she shoots him! Good luck.
Spray some vanilla extract out when those winds are going. Trust me.

Got camo all scent free and we are going to change into it right before we go up the canyon. Then we will take our time into it. Hoping for this bear to come in. I am counting on other bears to make him come in and control the bait site. Also hoping some of the other bears to be sow's as he will stick around then. Will be leaving tonight for the one night in about 4 hours. I will keep you posted.

DID YOU TAG HIM?

Is it legal to hunt at night in Idaho? In CA it's not.
