Seen this bear a few yrs ago. I'm not a bear hunter but he looked to be around the 300 lb marker. Bear was around 600yrds out.

I figured that 300 lb. comment had to be a joke since you did post this in "Other Small Game"

Sitting bear. I take back the 300 lb'er guess. Closer to 13.3 lbs.

I've always read, heard seen that you judge by the ears. The ears quit growing but the head doesn't. Judge by how many ear widths are between the ears. This bear is barely over one width so it is very young. Most adults are 2 or over and trophy size is 3.
