He was indeed a very big Bear, nicely documented Woody.

Good story. Whoever shot that big boy had a workout flensing the hide.

Indeed. He actually weighed 649 pounds and I can't imagine getting him out of the woods unless he was shot right along a road. I once spoke with a fellow who'd shot a 554 pound bear about the effort it took to get it out -- six people and an ATV. Having participated in a number of tagging/applying radio collar operations I quickly learned that "bears ain't got no handles".
