This is the biggest bear we have got so far.
And it was shot by the biggest hunter we have guided so far too LOL
This man came for a bait hunt and killed a 280# bear 2 yrs before this and wrote a nice story in North American Hunting club about us.He came back for another bait hunt and wanted a bigger one.We had him on a bait with a giant bear coming,but he wouldn't show himself in the daylight.The man was diligent and wouldn't moove to another bait he wanted this bear.Friday morning I said lets try the hounds on him.he was game so we loaded the hounds.The dogs had this bear caught within 45 min.and walked and bayd him all day.The hunter a heavy 300+ was in no shape to keep up 7 hr's from when we started him he finaly treed.We packed out the 4 1/4 back strapes and head and hide.The head and hide alone whent 140# I left a tracking color whith the carcas so I could find it again.I whent back on Sunday with the scales and wayed the carcas It totaled 475 # We had 6 hounds on this bear throughout the day and 5 of them needed stitching when we where done.
