Potential Wisconsin Record Black Bear Found in Field
Wade Brockman discovered a large dead black bear in one of his fields last November and it's turned out to be a whopper coming in at 23 5/16 inches. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a write up about Wade and the bear.
Wade Brockman of Tomah makes his living as a cranberry grower. Aside from work and family, though, he says his life "revolves around hunting." So it should come as no surprise that Brockman was in a tree stand on his farm Nov. 28, the last day of the 2010 Wisconsin gun deer season.
