I messed up and shot a 120-130 lbser, after passing multiple 200-250 lbsers over 3 days (all on video) and had convinced myself that the one I shot was bigger than them, and that was after I'd watched him come to the bait 5 times. When we followed the blood trail right to where he laid, my camera guy got in an argument with the guide that the one laying there wasn't the one I shot, and he was 100% deadly serious. In fact, they were starting to yell at each other, when I grabbed the bear, picked it up, turned it around and told my buddy, "Shut up. It's our bear.
and for the record...
1. how did you get the cow there?
2. You are gonna have a mess there in a few weeks with the cow..
3. I don't think I would walk within 50 yards of that bait set... you are gonna have flies of biblical proportions.
4. I am gonna guess. coon city, skunk town, and possum ville.
I knew a guy that did that once with a cow. wow.. it was a freaking mess... He thought it was a good idea. I like the sweets for bears... their sweet tooth gets em every time.
man.. I keep looking with you guys saying so big. I don't see it. Not long enough, maybe 400??? tops. I don't see 600.. NO WAY.. Saw a 600 in the UP twice. One my realtor shot and the other one was hit by a corn head. Those were 600 all day, and this bear isn't even CLOSE. Both of those were looooooong and thick. That belly is way off the ground. No way over 400!!
DON'T GET ME WRONG.. I WOULD SMOKE IT!!!! BUT WE ARE ASKED TO JUDGE WEIGHT.
