We shot this bear still hunting Monday afternoon. My daughter was walking on air. It took 5 of us to load him. We worked most of the night skinning him out and cutting him up. It is our biggest bear so far. I don’t know of to many 11 year old girls that would have lay down beside the bear in the middle of the night so dad could take a picture. It is hard to realize just how big he is without seeing him
My dad grew up on a farm in Pinetown, NC in Beaufort county. He said growing up they used to kill and eat about one bear a year but they probably killed more than that. I heard my grandfather had a run in with the local game warden about putting out traps for bears. There are big bears in Beaufort county.
