Potential New Record Colorado Black Bear
Most black bears taken in Colorado are the 200-300 lb variety, but every once in a while a hunter takes a monster of a bruin. This year Craig resident Richard Kendall has taken a 703 lb massive black bear which green scores at 22 5/8 inches enough to be the new state record if it doesn't shrink.
Heart pounding and adrenaline pumping, he stuck his head inside the cave and made eye contact with the object of his hunt — a 703-pound black bear, one bigger than he’d ever seen or tracked before. At that moment, the world around him stopped — it was only he and the bear, do or die.
