Congrats on your bear.I would gess your bear around 280# from your pictur of him.
You posted that he was 5'6" in your post did you get a gerth mesurment of his chest????
I have a chart that will give estimated weight by length and girth mesurements.
The veriance in weight from this chart is within 10-15 pounds and never more than 20-25 pounds.if you have a field dressed weight of your bear and want to know the live weight its approximatly 19% greater.
Tobey - thanks man......I didn't get a girth on him.....but here's a better angled pic......I just saw a similar formula on another site.....I'll know to get one next time....Damn, I keep learning chit on this site!? :confused:

Ithaca - great pics & Nice bear...looks like you've been on some great hunts!

Moosie - as for Mt^Boy, I laugh hardest on this site... keep up the good work!! :D

As for the bear, I just had some beginners luck, while I was out having a blast.... If anyone needs a lesson in of shooting dink deer, though - I AM the EXPERT!!!....gotta like that veal-nison

I'll shut-TFUp now...
