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.
That 839lb bear now is in the game commission office in Harrisburg Pa.It was taken out of season,but the West Virginia season was open so the guys took down there.The people at the check in station knew they did not have any bears that big so they got the hunter to talk
