I think the average bear shot is probably 5í something nose to tail on the carcass. Most guys talking about 7í+ bears arenít measuring the way I do and I donít give it much merit. Iíve seen two bears that were true monsters. One by Abraham lake and one just outside the Banff park gates both much larger then anything Iíve ever seen on a bait.

I only ever had one on my bait that I thought may push the 7í mark. He was my moby dick so to speak, the one that had me excited every spring. Here he was in 2010

He disappeared mid may in 2010 after the first time I sat and hunted him. He came back on the last day of the season in 2017 but I didnít notice until after the season closed. He lost his ears but I would of loved to have put an arrow through him. I always knew him by his white eyebrows which is how I recognised him in 2017.

Iíve shot plenty of 6í something bears like this one but never a true monster.
