My next door neighbor has a resident bear that is easily that big or larger. He will lay on his back and pick pears from the pear tree while laying down. Another guide just showed me a pic of a black bear from his buddy's trail cam that was disturbingly large. It's head alone looked like it probably weighed 100lbs!

As buckman says, now is the time to observe bears since they will be heading to the woods once the acorns start dropping.
I'll buy you a cheeseburger if that bear is killed this season and is less than 500 pounds!

The Ellijay pic is of a good one. The rest are all youngsters.
Take it from a veteran NF hunter; There is no doubt about a big boy.

Deal! There aren't that many bears running in GA that size and not that many have ever been killed.

Like I said, it just doesn't look the size of those coming out of East NC recently.

Saw two cubs and one adult at Low Gap and Janus Creek today. They were in separate areas several miles apart and not too afraid of people. One I met closeup (35 feet) drinking on the other side of the creek I was fishing. I never heard him as he moved like molasses thru the woods. Had to activate my truck alarm to scare him away.
