He was hunting with his 8 year old daughter, who saw the bear first. They were on the ground. When he shot it, the bear, not knowing where they were, ran toward them and piled up 5 yards from where they sat. 4 of us went in with a 4 wheeler and managed to get him out. We weighed him at the scales in a local truck stop. It wound up being a 1 a.m. get home time. He was caped this morning by taxidermist and measured 7'5"

I just dropped off a buck at K&M deer cooler in White. That must have been your bear in there, skinned and on a float. The picture does not do it justice y'all. That thing skinned looks like a cow at first glance.

That would be a very good size bear for Maine too. Congrads, on that bear and its coat is beautiful. Should make a great rug. Get it double felted (it just looks a lot better that way).

The Bear was killed on the Eastern side of the county. We would rather keep the GPS location to ourselves.;)

Thats why I asked as I had heard of a really big bear that had been frequently seen making a pretty good living off someone's chicken farm between Fairmount and Ranger. If this in fact was got in the eastern part of Gordon it may be the same one? Or maybe there is another great big 'un wandering around still.

Thanks for the info on the location of where the bear was taken. Dont blame you for not being specific, too many people might decide they might want to hunt that area (even if it belongs to Uncle Posted). Once again congrats on that kill!
