He looks like a decent size. Not sure how to score a bear but the last pic makes him look like he has some girth.

It's hard to say how big his head is but that's a really good bear. My last blackbear (2011) was 6'3" and he an 18.5" head. I doubt this one will go 20" but good lord he's a brute. He doesn't look rubbed and he's a nice color too. Keep us updated on how your hunt goes. Good luck.

I've always been told to judge the head. if the ears look small in comparison to the rest of their head, they're good to go.

The other thing to remember in Utah, our bears have bigger heads in relation to their bodies than you see in AK, Canada or the east coast. I think that bear is a stud, with a decent pumpkin on his shoulders. He could break 20"
