OVER 500 POUNDS


Russ Blake of Wyoming, MI bagged this black bear, which weighed in at over 500 pounds, in the Reedsburg Dam area Sept. 25. Lyman Foster of Lyman's Bait Shop at Houghton Lake said Blake bagged the big boar with a .44 caliber handgun, and said it was bigger than another bear he shot which is currently the state handgun record bear. Blake said the bear will be measured by both Commemorative Bucks of Michigan and Boone and Crocket.
