Very cool shots for sure and for those who live in northern Ontario. Do you remember a black bear that was hit by a big rig in between Cochrane and Kapuskasing around 25 years ago? It's weight was a little over 800lbs ! The trucker reported it saying he was sure he hit a Grizzly so the MNR was even a little miffed but it WAS a Black :)

I do remember that bear and event. I could not remember the weight. it would be interesting to know the weight of this one. I don't think he's 800lbs but he is on the larger side.

Why didn't you get closer? You could have really stepped up the quality of the shots Jeff.
Lol
Great shots.

Mike he was a real ham, as big as he was I shot him at 20 feet and he was not interested in being a threat at all, lucky for me!!
