Oklahoma Showing It Has Large Bear

OK Dept. Of Wildlife Conservation, Bear Hunting Magazine

In Oklahoma, bear hunting seasons restarted four years ago and until this year, they usually lasted a day or two day before the quota was harvested. This year, however, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation did not set a quota and bear hunters in the state are reaping the rewards.

A Savanna, Oklahoma man shot a 675-pound black bear on October 6th by Sardis Lake, which may make the Oklahoma DWC have to create a record book for bears harvests. The 39 year-old had seen the giant black bear last year, but because the season lasted just two days, he didn't get a chance at it.
