    From this photo it’s hard to tell much about the sex and size but the head size and neck looks like a mature bear. It might be a big bore or sow looking at the large rear end. Sure would like to see more pics of it that you get.

    Great looking bear. He’d look even better with a hole in his side though.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    If you want some great reference material on sizing a black bear look at the Archer’s Choice’s dvd collection of bear’n down. They can help sex a bear as well and that’s always a tough one.

    The shorter the legs look, the shorter the neck looks (no neck is great), the smaller the ears, the bigger the bear.
