That's an impressive beast. Should be pretty close to WA state record?

So what's the hunt story with this bear? Did he come from Stevens County? Any pics with the hunter?

You had pictures up here at one time. Did you delete the thread?  I looked briefly but couldn’t find it.

For the record, this might be my favorite Washington bear killed of all time. And a brute.
