Pa Hunter takes Record Bear in Maine

Congrats To Matt Knox!




September 13, 2012
GREENVILLE JUNCTION, Maine (AP) Maine officials say a hunter has shot a record large bear in Greenville Junction.

The 699-pound bear broke a nearly 20-year record.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife says the bear was shot by Matt Knox, of Waynesboro, Pa., who visited the state last week for his first bear hunt.

The previous record-holder was a 680-pound bear taken in 1993.

State biologists have predicted a strong season for bear hunters. Officials now say this year's dryness and lack of berry and nut crops might mean that bigger bears will be more visible this season in search of food.
