World Record Black Bear Confirmed in PA from Today

"Like" to congratulate Robert Christian!
The world's largest hunter-killed black bear was taken right here in PA. Only one bear skull is known to be larger; that skull was found in Utah in 1975. Robert took this Monroe County, black bear in 2011. The bear's skull measured a Boone & Crockett Club score of 23 9/16 inches. You'll find Robert's #1 PA bear in the upcoming version of the PGC Big Game Records Book available August 2012.

Picture is available on the PGC facebook page.

And Bear, many of us still recall when you got that record. Can't stay #1 forever. I think its awesome that you are so gracious about it.

Re: World Record Black Bear Confirmed in PA from Today

Just a couple of years ago, Outdoor Life editor Gerry Bethge and his girlfriend came to PA and hunted with us up at Steve Trupe's place.

He said the editors of OL all expected PA to have the next world record bear.

Sure wasn't long before that prediction came true.

I think I'll call Gerry and ask him for tonights lottery numbers.
