This week I went out scouting for bear, I found a tree with claw marks as high as I could reach...about 7 -8 feet high.

Anyone have a guess how big the bear might have been?

At another location I found a front paw print that was about 4 1/2 inches wide..

How big might this bear have been?

thank you

Thank you
I think this would be a good bear for my first hunt!

Guessing by the pad size I would say between 150 and 200 live weight depending on the amount of food and time of year. Probably about a 5 footer.
