Nope - cause there is no reference or object to measure these two by so I'd guess maybe smaller like 225 for both.

Sending from my blackberry so I can't forward pictures. I am definitly after the Fat Boy. I stand strong at 300 plus. Everyone I have shown the photo to says he is closer ti 400.

that first pic is definately more than 225. just shot one that weighed 240 live weight. or so I was told. not anywhere near that fat. butcher said the formule for figuring live weight is field dressed weight X 1.2. means mine was in the 230 range. good luck getting either one of them.

OK i had a little taste of humble pie. I ended up shooting the fat one and he weighed in at 240 pounds. I believe there was a bigger one on this same bate but i am more than pleased with my first bear!!!
Check out the pictures of the one i let walk because of the bald spot on his back!!!! (STUPID STUPID STUPID) The taxidermist could have fixed that.
What would this one weigh and square? He seamed long.

In the immortal words of our Ralph, "If it's head looks like J-Lo's butt, shoot!"

Congrats on your first bear.
