772 lb PA Black Bear!

Yikes! This bear looks as large as some of our Alaskan Brown Bear. Bigger than many Grizzlies.

Pennsylvania man reportedly bags 772-pound black bear | Fox News

"A Pennsylvania man reportedly bagged the largest recorded black bear of the season when he successfully took it down with two shots fired from his deceased fatherís rifle.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission said the bear shot by Daniel Beavers weighed 772 pounds, The Scranton Times-Tribune reported."

    Pa regularly kills bears over 600 LBS. I believe the biggest was a few years back weighing 839 LBS. Unfortunately I think the bear was shot in Pa then the guy claimed he shot it in West Virginia for whatever reason so he doesn't have it anymore. The knock against Pa bears and most eastern bears is that they grow big but their skulls don't. Either way that's an awesome bear. The land I was hunting this year had a 733 pounder killed on it in 05.
