Having shot and sitting with hundreds of hunters on a baits watching bears with over 45 year experience .....I learned many years ago to put some thing of known size to help judge the size of a bear at the bait ....especially for a hunter that hasn't seen many bears.....even experienced bear hunters like me......
I will say the bear in the picture is not very old....head is large for the body size....rear end is smaller for body size....belly has lots of ground clearance for a fall bear.....
Its great to shoot a large bear but this late in the hunt and having a good Michigan bear on the bait in good shooting light I would be pulling the trigger or telling my hunter to do it.....
This late in the hunt and also hunting in the UP there's not a lot of time left and cold weather will shut down baits real quick....
