    Why does it look like the shooter is sitting well behind the bear with an arm outstretched that doesn't appear to actually be touching the bear?

    According to that picture the bear's ear is bigger that the hunter's head. That would be a record sized Bear....

    That's what happens when you sit 5 feet behind the animal and pose for the pic. He has his hand outstretched, but he's not even touching the bear. Same as those guys who catch a fish and then hold it at arm's length out to the camera. It's a serious pet peeve of mine.

    It's a nice bear, but nowhere near as big as it looks. The ear to head ratio is a decent guide to judging bear size. If the ears look small compared to the head, it's a big bear. If they look large, it's a smaller bear. Doing this off a picture at this angle isn't ideal but this bear's ear is quite large in proportion to its head. This looks to be a young bear of average size. I'd put him around 5 1/2' to 6'.

    No matter our nitpicking though, it's still a good bear. The coat color is very nice, he'll make a great rug. Congrats to the hunter.
    I'd rather make a difference than a dollar.

    Yeah my grandfather taught me to visualize bending the ears over the top of the head. If the ears touch, don't shoot it. If the ears appear to not even reach the top of the head, shoot very well

    That bear will be GREAT eating right now!

    Just got word my boss had two bears in her yard on mother's day after her chickens. Her husband shot one and the other got away. Then their neighbors called the cops on them
