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.
