Got this in an email, looking around now to see if this is accurate.... But heres the story:


The following pictures are of a guy who works for the Forest Service in Alaska. He was out deer hunting. A large world record Grizzly charged him from about 50 yards away. The guy unloaded a 7mm Mag csemi-auto into the bear and it dropped a few feet from him. The monster was still alive so he reloaded and capped it in the head.

The bear had killed 2 other people. His last meal was the poor fellow on a nature hike. The Forest Service found his 38-caliber emptied. He shot 6-times and hit the grizzly 4(they found seven 7mm slugs and four 38 caliber slugs in him) but obviously only wounded him since it was estimated to be 3 days prior to the bear's death by the Forest Service man.

It was over one thousand six hundred pounds, 12'6" high at the shoulder to the top of his head. It's the largest grizzly bear ever recorded in the world. Of course, the game department did not let him keep it.

It will be mounted and put on display at the Anchorage airport (to remind tourist's of the risks involved when in the wild).

Kids will believe anything. just kiddin

Actually the bear would rank at #150 in the boone and crocket record books. It did not charge them. They did kill the bear at close range, but they were watching it coming down the creek towards them. The two guys were sitka deer hunting and one had a griz tag and was really hoping to find a bear.

If you can get your hands on the cabelas big game adventures magazine the article is in there. It was the 2nd to last edition out.

I got that same email about a year ago.

Its amazing how bloated this story got, I got a half dozen e-mails about the damn thing. I even got pictures of the supposed victim{laying in green grass,duh}. Some people have too much time on their hands.

Hey all, I saw that bear and hunter in bowhunter magazine about six months ago. It was killed on Kodiak Island by the guy pictured with one arrow. Looks like somebodies been having some fun with it, I've seen probably a dozen different stories concerning that bear, most involving a park ranger and a partialy eaten corpse. Hope someone has the article so these wild tales can be layed to rest.
