Interesting story from a friend of mine who is guiding brown bear hunters this spring. Seems one of his guides and a client took a brown bear yesterday or the day before. The brownie had sniffed out a black bear den, dug the black bear out, killed it and was eating it when they came on the scene. I didn't get the measurements on the brown bear, but the hide looks like it could be a nine-footer or so. Pretty interesting.
