    Can any of you bear hunters out there give me a guestimate of this bears weight? He has been showing up around my box stand lately. Thanks

    Looks like a boar bear and I'd say he would go about 300 to 375. At the 500 range it will look like his belly is almost dragging the ground.

    175 lbs to 225 lbs. - His ears are on high on the top and appear large in comparison to the size of the head.

    My Guess
    Not really a Bear hunter but have cousins in West V that are fanatics and have seen my share and my guess would be around 200lbs also. Some of the best eating around.

    Thanks for the help guys. I am not sure if both pictures are of the same bear. I hunt between New Bern and Kinston on that long stretch of road. I have seen a bear almost everytime I go to the club so far this year. There are alot of bear in the area. My son has a camera set up about 1.5 miles from mine and he has several bear on the camera as well. The bottom pic just looked a bit bigger with the large head.
