    Man I suck at judging bears....
    when I saw that picture of the long faced bear I immediately though young bear.... So very wrong.
    Bears are hard to judge.

    Good thread.
    I agree with two feet about “ just getting on the board” for those that are new hunters or have limited time.

    ive passed up a couple bears this spring that I would gladly have in the freezer now.

    Yup. Definitely the hardest game species to field judge ..... at least in BC.

    Don't forget you get 2 bear tags each year too, at least in most areas I can think of. So occasionally if I find a nice easy eater I will take it and save the 2nd take for a monster.

    I've noticed a couple guys mention the hips/ass end. I've been noticing some bears lately that appear to be walking around with a slumped/slouched back end, sometimes looks like they are almost trying to drag their junk on the ground, whereas others with a more upright/higher back end that is kind of the peak. Is this what people are talking about when they say hips/ass end or is this more just to do with how they are standing or the terrain they are going over at the time? Either way, it's not something I've ever used to judge bears myself but was something quite different I saw from bear to bear but none had cubs with them and none were what I'd consider monsters otherwise so nothing definitive to compare them too.
