There are unconfirmed pictures floating around the Internet of a 639 pound Black Bear shot just outside of Bayfield. This is interesting as I spotted a huge bear this summer and the police have twice chased a huge bear out of town with their squad car. But this bear seems to be much much larger! The all time world record Black Bear was shot near Glidden Wi. in 1963 and that bear weighed 665 lbs and can be seen near the Glidden Fire Station in a display. What else is walking around the Chequamegon National Forest? Really makes you think. The hunter pictured looks like a young Matt Damon I think. Still waiting for details in the Ashland Daily Press or another newspaper.
