    The bear is real, but all the claims of "Largest ever" and "he had the parts of 3 people in him" and "It took 20 shots to kill it" all come from an urban legend that started a year or 2 ago.

    While the bear was indeed huge, it did not break any records. The young man that killed it was from Eielson AFB.

        ok, old photo then

        I take it this has been around for a while? I just ran across it today and hadn't seen it before. Didn't know there were stories and legends to go with it! Nice bear tho.

          Urban Legend

          This story has been boomeranging around the 'net for a while now. You can read the details on it on the snopes.com site, but I'm not going to post the link here. There was another photo associated with this involving partially-consumed human remains, but that was also part of the hoax. Pretty gruesome. It was a big bear, but no 12-footer.

            Hinchinbrook Bear

            BRWNBR is as correct as correct gets...

            10'4" from Hinchinbrook, three shots with a .338, shot by an EAFB man. Good bear, I'd love to have been the one who took it.

              Not again

              I worked with the guy and saw the skull of this bear. Nice bear and at first there was alot of hype about it until it was scored. I think after drying the skull went around 28 or so and it squared at 10' I believe. It was a nice bear but I think this has been going around the net for 4-5 years now. Will it ever end?

                ??? Where did the post go?

                With the ADN story? I just got done reading it and went to reply and *poof* it was gone. Anyway thanks to whoever did the research and posted (momentarily) the real story. I didn't realize the photo had been around for 5 years! Thought it was a cool pic tho.

                Congrats to the hunter (5 yrs late!)

                  It was a copyrighted story...we can't reproduce those here. I encouraged the poster to provide a short summary and a quote or two and a hyperlink to the story.
