Default another bear

Went out this weekend and got another bear on the camera. Anyone have any guess on weight? He lookspretty big to me. I know this is not a good thing to have when going after deer but I did get my biggest deer on camera about two hours after the bear was there. I know he is not a monster, but you have to start somewhere!!!

Right around 200 lbs I would guess. My 11 year old nephew shot a bear yesterday and she weighed 152 lbs.

That bear is bigger than 200 lbs. Look at the diff in the deer body and the bear.
I know to those not used to seeing bear they all weigh #350 but that one is close...and I have seen prob. 100 or more wild bears.

oh, you'll get pics of deer before the bear comes through. however, every time a bear comes through the deer are REALLY freaked out after. I have video of them sniffing the area, turning, and hauling ass the other way. bear are bad!

It was strange to me that even the young buck hung around for a good hour even though the bear was there a hour or two before. Maybe he has not had a run in with a bear yet!

The bear in the tree looks to have pretty big ears. I was always told if the bears ears look small on the head that is probably a mature bear. So i would say the bear in the tree is young. The two on the ground look like mature bears to me. Maybe 300lbs.
