Bob Becker of Winona snapped this photo of a black bear checking out a deer decoy while Becker was deer hunting Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012, evening on a bluff near Cochrane, Wis.

He estimated the bear to be around 250 pounds.

Becker said he was surprised he wasn't seeing any deer but found out why when he first spotted a black spot walking across a field.

    I'm thinking lunch. Though venison isn't a bear's favorite food...especially a full grown buck.
