Default Is this a shooter Bear?

I'm a deer hunter and don't know squat about bears, but I got these on my trail cam last week. Is this a shooter? I took the picture using a Trail Ghost P41LE made locally here. www.trailghost.com. (People always ask what camera I use) I had to really reduce the picture, so I hope it's clear.

It looks good. Kinda hard to tell what with the tall grass, but it has a nice big belly on it. The head looks small for the body size, and has a great coat. I say it would be an awesome trophy. Yet, I have never shot a bear nor hunted for them, only prep'd for my upcoming bear hunt in august.
Any other opinions?

Depends on what you're looking for. I'm no expert on bears so I might be off a bit. Looks like a decent black bear, not huge but not too bad. Can you post a cropped picture with better view of the bear?

Looks like a good bear--especially for one out in your local deer patch

It looks good but like others said hard to tell from the picture. When your out in the field a good way to tell is the ears the smaller the ears the bigger the bear also if you bait bear using some kind of of barrel you can compare the size of the bear to the barrel. The higher it can reach the bigger the bear. Follow. Good luck.
