    ok i live in washington county, and i have never saw a bear here and there has never been a reported bear kill in our county i dont think. anyway i got about 800 acers of thick dense woods. i put out the trail cams the other day and got some wiered pics that im not to sure wth it is. any opinions on what you guys think it is please. i think its a big bear but it seems to have longer hair than you see on most bears, but like i said before i never saw or heard of anyone seeing a bear anywhere around here.

    I might throw out another possibility other then a bear. Living in such rugged forest leads me to think Sasquatch. But yet I have been wrong before LOL.

    lol you have no idea how many people have said the same thing haha
     
  8. After playing with the pic for a bit it sure looks like it could be. Hard to be sure from the angles and not being the original pics, but pulled from what was posted. But build and proportion's look right.
     
  9. looks like the rear end of a giant hog to me. I've got pics here that look almost exactly the same and I know for a fact ours are hogs, as I also have perfect pics of the same hogs from my trailcam...

    that would be even stranger if it was a hog. closest wild hogs to me are at least a state or 2 away. would you mind posting up pics that look like mine. thanks

    Or the hind quarters of a rough coon close to the camera?
     
  13. I hope there are more pics when you check the cameras in a few days. It looks quite large!

    oh and i dont think its a close up of a coon in the one pic you can see it walking away and it has a small tail tucked close to its body
     
  17. going through my pictures I deleted all bad pics and only kept the hog pics that were plain. I didn't remember doing this, but apparently I did.

    I agree though with the lightened pictures that it looks more like a bear now that it's lightened.

    considering there were 2 bear sightings(one actually in Sears) near pittsburgh--I'd go with bear---The bear at Sears had a collar put on at Johnstown---made it's way to Butler and back down to pittsburgh. A journey of about 150 miles and was never spotted until it visited the store--It's very posible there are bear in Washington Co. that haven't been seen.

    yea that thing has to be a big bear
     
  20. I blowed it up and lightened it up and it is a bear. Put out something they like and see if you get a better pic something to hold him in front of the camera for a little while.
