Anyone ever catch a Bear?

Anyone ever catch a bear and actually hold it in the trap? What the heck do you do then? I am almost positive I have had them in my traps before with finding the hair and major pull rings or missing traps.

I've caught 2 in yote sets.
I let one go and the game commission let the other go.
1st one was around 100# and the 2nd was smaller.

My uncle, who is the forum sponsor (Animalistics \ Darin Freeborough) caught and held 2 last year alone. I think he got one the year before that as well.

Re: Anyone ever catch a Bear?

How the heck would you release a 100# bear? It was sketchy enough holding a raccoon at foots length to release it.
