Over the last 5 years, I've probably received this e-mail 15 - 20 times, usually with the half-eaten hiker. This bear pic first showed up on HNI and the story is not the same as the one that accompanies the e-mail. The half-eaten hiker pic bears no relationship to the bear at all -- it was just attached over the years as the story evolved. The true scoop can be found on snopes.

Dang it daveh you beat me to the punch.... [8D]

http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/bearhunt.asp

10'6" tall(still big enought make me crap my pants...)
1000-1200 lbs. (again... still big enough)
6 shots from a .338 win mag, including one to the head(brain)
6 hours to skin...

as Daveh said, the human remains pic had nothing to do with it...

Yup, a lot of years ago for that one and the half eaten human was attached with the rest of the photos in the emails and had nothing to do with the actual bear and I'm not sure the whole human issue wasn't added later too. Most of what you read behind that story is false and embellished as the story was passed around. I hardly remember the truth behind it at all anymore.
