Bear - Caught by Member Animal

I'm posting this for "Animal" (who's my uncle) and the forum sponsor.

He made this catch last week. Not the first one he's caught and held, I'm not even positive it's the first one this year for that matter but I'm sure he'll chime in as time allows. He said the PGC person that helped him estimated the weight at around 200 lbs.

Re: Bear

Nice. Looks like a KB Compound 5.5 Predator Trap. I don't see those very often.
