Nice bear. Id guess 225 lbs. Hard to tell but his ears look kinda big and his stomach doesnt look to be sagging. But he seems pretty tall compared to your barrel. Id take him.

He's decent. Ears are spread on the side of his head. You can start to see the tell tale crease down the middle of the head which is indicative of a nicer bear. Its no tanker by all means but starting into the shooter category. My guess is a 5-6 year old boar.

Looks like a nice bear but knowing the height of the barrel would help put it into perspective.

Dont look like much over 190 to me, but still a nice bear! Slightly gangly looking, big ears too.

Young, skinny bear, probably 150-175lbs. Look how long his legs appear and as mentioned in another post, check out his ears and where they appear to sit on his head, ...... pass on this one unless he's the only one you see.

No way that bear is over 200, more like 175.
