    That hike was garbage, lol. That picture was taken at 8:55, we got to the truck, that was about 1,000 yards uphill, at 11:45. I was more exhausted than I have ever been. I am truly grateful that he wasn't 10 pounds heavier as I would have eaten that extra weight there and then. My pack weighed 75#.
    Also, that hill in the background, that wasn't the steep one, lol.

    Very nice Whitey. Was there much fat on the bear? I'm guessing not.

    There was only a tiny amount on the back of his "thighs", other than that, zero. Biologist said that he was probably 3.5-4.5 yrs old and gauging off his paws and head he was 150-175# now, and add 60-100 for fall weight.

    Where are the bears? Maybe out in the forest answering the age old question, by having a poop! ;)
