I don`t know if I would even shoot that thing with an arrow, my luck I`d just get it POed at me. I did se in National Geographic (I believe) that because of the deminished ice range there is now a cross between Polar & Grizzely bears, now that would be a mean bear, both are really large & smart.

You should all read the 'rest of the story' about 'Smokey'. He was ear-tagged in NJ; and PA was well aware of him near the area he lived in. Locals said he would practically 'pose' for video and snapshots. He was not a marauding 'Man-killer', and surely not a pet, but WTF.
Goggle the story for yourself. It is kinda like Moose hunting: shoot a big dumb animal that eats grass and looks majestic. It is like shooting a farmers cow. No, I'm no 'bunny hugger', but do respect animals, and their way of life.

That is/was one very large bear, so if it is a record animal hopefully there are more growing up right now to take his place. :o :( :? :mad: :idea:

Was trying to do a search on this bear, lots of rumors i guess. They are saying it took 3 guys and a total of 9 arrows, the bear was treed at the end.

I see both sides. my first thought was of the women and the big ape who attacked her and removed her face vs a wild animal as a pet

the young man sure did get himself a record trophy tho...

a bittersweet story ;)

Read through the comments after that story. A lot of disdain, apparently an old man had been taking care of that bear for years. I don't think there was much challenge involved. I know a decorated Viet Vet who has an opinion on hunting, he says "What fun is it if the quarry isn't shooting back?"

The man is wrong for feeding wild animals, the temptation is always there but your not doing them a favor in the long run. I agree with your friend Dan, my theory on hunting is I wonder how many would be out there if the animals were armed. But its a catch 22, its necessary to thin out the population I just get POed when I see a animal just left there with a few cuts taken off. In Pa. you can turn them in to the share the harvest program but then they couldn`t go out & kill another.

yep,my 318 lb. guy came charging towards me in Granville,Vt--right near Sugarbush ski area--deer & bear season over-lapped back then.don't know about now--2 things,people useing cross-bows suk--I took mine with a re-curve,one arrow through the heart--he bled out after about 25 yds--after reading the details on this one,& the kid knew of the bear--that's a shame,yet it seems he don't get why some people aren't real happy with him---dumb-ass---my take was back in the 70's & I carried him out on my back,not on a 4-wheeler----I haven't hunted for 5 seasons now,too many A-holes out there---today was the 1st day of shotgun season & I've already put half a dozen people off my property---they wanted to know who I was :mad:
