    hey guys, I recently got several pictures of the back bear that’s been chewing up my feeder, wondering if it’s possible to judge weight by higth?

    Going by it standing by my feeder it’s roughly 6.5 ft tall on its rear legs, that’s really all I have to go by.

    Thanks for any input.

    Edit: Just realized I miss spelled black BEAR, blame it on the cruise liquor....

    nope, bears come in all shape and sizes like people. all you can do is guess their weight.

    I added a couple trail cam pics of it standing next to my feeder, did they show up?

    Yes the trail cam pictures show....Around 150 to 170 lb's max. You need a side view to really guess weight. Need to see how low to the ground it's belly is not a standing view. It only reaches the bottom of the barrel and I am saying the legs are around 5 1/2 foot. Not got the width of a large bear either belly wise in the standing photo's.

    According to me, it's near about 180.
