Default check out my 7'1" P&Y black bear

shot this monster with my bow this year while hunting early season whitetail in WA. Taxidermist told me he measured it at 7'1", the biggest he's ever had in his shop... even though it was a sow! Couldn't figure out how to post a pic, but here is a link to it on MyTrophyRoom.com

That is one heck of a blackie. We usually have a couple here in PA that are harvested in the 600 lb range every year. I can't imagine how many guys it would take to get something like that out of the woods.

yeah, getting it out of the woods was another story all to itself... a lot of work and a lot of creativity
