John Locke and “Tank” the Bear
By Kamp Cook


 I killed this bear on 16 May 16. Beautiful Chocolate.
I have named him “Tank” the bear.
6’4″ ( not stretched, just hide laid out on the floor.
248 Lbs dressed
32″ neck
49″ chest.
His skull is huge—   Green score is over 21″  ( B&C state
record is 21 8/16th.
Most likely after drying with at least be in the top five for B&C
Black bear in Montana.
Next I’ll send you  an image of a wolf I trapped in Feb of this year.
Not bad for an old fart facing the big “seven zero” in the very
near future.

PS.  Some 30 years ago I killed the #2 P&Y (bow kill) Black bear in
Montana which still stands today.
