or less. there's been many 250+lbs out of this camp. even a handful knocking on the door of 400lbs. down the road another outfitter uses dogs and theyve gotten multiple 500lbers but with dogs you can go to them and pull dogs off a small bear to look for another one.

I hunted 3M last Sat 9.17 and Sun 9.18. I didn't see a bear. The sweet corn they were in two weeks ago dried up and died. Very, very dry there. Walked some cow corn but never put eyes on one. Fun nonetheless. 

And then last night I get the pics. Killed last night. In the cow corn where I walked. Close range gun kill. I don't have all the details and I doubt it was weighed, but what say you? Put a weight on it.

So here's an update. My buddy with whom I stayed with on this trip actually killed this bear. He broke it down yesterday. I asked him today if he weighed it. His response . . . 

"Just the front arm. 75lbs. He had to be 500+. I could "bearly" lift the torso after I took the meat off. The cooler with the hide and head almost threw my back out. They had to be 100lbs each. 300 in meat. Plus the guts? Ass to tip of snout was 6'6"."

So there you have it lol. I hope y'all understand I'm not claiming it was a 500 lb'der. I'll let him do that. Said friend is a type "A" personality. Go big or go home type of guy. All I can say was it was a big bear.

That bear been eating in a sweet corn field; should be some good eats. You eat pork? Anything free range can have tric. too.

Bear are deceptively heavy for size.

Just poking at his cage cause I think its silly.

Although pigs will eat anything, and rooting around eating carrion can infect them.

Avoid dog too, they get it…..

So more to the story. Buddy #1 sends me this crappy pic today. Says he doesn't think he killed the biggest bear there. Sent the pic to buddy #2 and he said "Holy shit." The people I hunt with are touched in the head.
