The bear weighed 550#, live weight. The guy, Gary, shot it with his bow in a corn field. Look at the gut on that critter, it was a male bear. Not positive, if it's not the biggest bear I've ever weighed, it's #2.

Gary is somewhere around 5' 11" tall, he's standing right beside that critter. Just guessing, Gary will go a good 300# or better!

Folks who discount climate warming should pay attention to that. The critters will tell us a lot. Next thing you know, you'll be taking possums out of your marten boxes.
Endeavor to persevere.
