I'm no expert on sizing bear but this thing looks pretty darn big.
(The date/time on my trail cam wasn't set and this pic was taken on 11/5/2020.)
He's big enough!
No bear guy here, but belly 6” off the ground I’d say big !

Is the bear behind the black Volkswagen
Fat old girl....short body length, small ankles but very very well fed.
Impossible to judge weight without some sort of reference... It’s certainly a big fat bear but it appears to have sow like characteristics.
Yep , need a barrel to judge the height, but she is eating a lot of twinkies . Forrest
I found something for perspective.
Not a BIG bear per se but she is FAT!!!
Ok, tell me how you know it's a girl bear? Is it the small head and narrow snout?
Around 350-375#'s I'd say.
Wrist size and how it tapers down front shoulder size compared to hind side...and pigeon toe look are just a few things that can decipher sex in photos...
Kurt...you just described my wife!!!
Big enough to keep it on the distance! I'm glad I have never encountered a bear in the wilderness

The first one is tough to judge he’s fat but looks short, Shugs two r heavier in the 5-6 range on the low end I would say there dandies all of them.
Picture from Stickit.... I'd say that is a fat old sow. Skinny ankles, dainty feet, short stout body, no big defining shoulders. Nice healthy looking sow though I would say
They don't get big in Florida
