I was lucky enough to harvest this great bear with the help of Mike Beaudette and Chuck McKenzie. NDOW estimated this bear to weigh 380lbs. He measures 74 1\4 from head to tail. Only 5% of bears in Nevada are black in color. This bear far exceeded my expectations and I can't thank Mike and Chuck enough. Thanks again!

Big bear! Growing up hunting coons, I bet it would be a lot of fun chasing one of those behind a pack of hounds.

Cognrats! I think a bear hunt behind hounds would be an exhaustingly good time. Well done!

Nice bear and it's nice to see somebody else who likes to use a Winchester Model 94 for bears. At least that's what it looks like? 30-30?

I was shooting an old Winchester model 94. First gun ever given to me by my grandparents. This bear will score high in Nevada and BC. Post his measurements when I get the skull back.

Just got my bear skull back. He officially scores 20 14/16. Was hoping he was over 21" but I'm still super happy. Thanks again Mike!
