    Here is a picture of the same bear, just a different pose with one of my huntin buddies that joined me on this hunt.

    Hey DrHorsePower, that is a cool painting of the dogs under a bear tree. I have similar water color paintings of my top hounds.

    Muley24/7, the bear had no white, he was a solid choclate. The white spots you see in the picture are thin areas of hair or rub spots.

    about the white chest..... I've seen a couple while deer hunting up there and they all had white chests and a cinnamon color like Bohntr's buddys, but every time I bump into one they always have small cubs! One day I'll get one. Is that a record for the san bernadino mts.?

    Yea most bears we take in southern cali have a lot of white on their chest and are either brown or cinamon. A "black," bear or a bear with no white on its chest is rare down here. The bear in the photos would have made the all time BC book. I believe his skull scored 21 12/16. I had him scored and mailed in the paper work to BC, they cashed my check and never gave me a response. I been meaning to call them, but never got a round tuit. The bears weight (700+) was an estimate, because he was killed too far from a road to carry out whole.

    Hey bigshot,
    That a San Berdo toad alright ! Big as a grizzly .They take some big ones out of there. I could be wrong but I remember years ago an 800 pounder??? came out of I wont say where. More pictures please ! I used to see blonde, red, brown and black in an area I used to back pack into that you and Muley's know about. I have a pic of a blonde sow with two blonde cubs that maybe I can get you or Muleys to post.
