his ears are on the side of his head, told this indicates an older bear..
Holy crap, he is big, i'd probably have to go clean out my shorts if I met him in the woods...back when we had a local dump, there was a bear that was frequenting it, it got quite big as the stories went, anyways, on opening day for small game I ran across that bear in an orchard that was close to the dump. When I entered the orchard, I found a large area of grass all padded down and thought if it's a bears bed, there should be black hair, if it's a deers bed, I probably wouldn't see any brown against the dead grass. No hair visible, must be a deer's bed and on I went into the orchard. Boys was I wrong, I hear something coming and it didn't sound like a partridge or a deer. It was Mr(s) Bear, it couldn't smell me and it was curious. Well, it was big and all I was hunting with was a 22, I turned around and walked maybe 5 steps before I bolted, man, Ben Johnson couldn't have caught me I on that 1/4 mile dash. I switched to a 12 gauge after that encounter.I think if you check the NB bear stats you will find that it doesn't take many years before you cross the 300lb mark for boars (fall weight), many sows will never reach it. A 2 year old will weigh under 100lbs in the spring but will top that in the fall. The bear to me just doesn't have the characteristics of an older big boar.
A big boar should look like this in the fall...
Mind you this is a ready big bear
