Where are the professionals?
« on: September 05, 2012, 08:25:03 AM »
Alright, I need some professional opinions.  Here are a few pictures I caught on my game camera this last week.  I was wondering what people think on the size (weight) and scores.

First thing.  How big do you think this bear is?  I included a picture of a deer in about the same place to gauge it's shoulder height.

#2  Do you think the second bear picture is the same bear?  It looks like a smaller bear to me but the time is around the same time.

#3  What do you score the final deer and how old do you think it is?  I think it needs another year or two if I can keep it alive from some of the other people around the property. 

Thanks for all the help.  We need some rain up here or the deer are going to have a hard winter.

The pics of the bear are really cool, sry I can't help more on that front, I'd guess the age of the deer around 2 1/2, score just a guess around the low 100's?

I an of the same feeling about the deer, I would say that is the same bear, compared to the deer he is a decent size bear but not the same size as the big boy I keep seeing at my house and the neighbor who is an avid bear hunter says the one I have around will go about 325.  your guy looks a little gangly

sorry can't help you on the bear....  the deer can't be older than 2.5 and I would say 97"

about 2 1/2 on the deer and low 100s. I lean towards maybe two separate bears, but one or two bears, they look rather young to me. not more than 250 or so is guess

sham, good to see you are getting some pics

deer is 2. around you, there are a lot of meat hunters that i know. try to keep him safe this year and then feed him some good protien next year

bears are young. by now i'm sure they have a bait they call home. WI bear season opened today. i think they are 2 separate bears.

lots of space between the belly and ground on the bear; so not a big one.

Thanks for all the feedback.  The deer just hammered that Buckwheat field.  Not much of it left right now.  I hope I can keep the deer around but there are a few places neighboring properties that seem to shoot about anything plus a WI open space real close.  Not much I can do with only 60+ acres.

I think the bear is around 250.  They run dogs in this area so we will see if he survives.

I dont know alot about the bear, but I would definatly shot it. Second I would call the buck 3 yrs old, 160lbs on the hoof and 100" rack.

I think two differnt bears. One seems just a bit less bulky than the other. The deer in my opinion is around 2 yrds old. Don't know anything about scoring but those commenting seem to have a fairly consistent handle on that.
