Okay, even though this isn’t a Montana hunting story, this is definitely worth sharing.  Twenty-one year-old North Carolina hunter, Caleb Henry, of Fines Creek, North Carolina, tagged one heck of a black bear on opening day of bear season.  He was hunting with his friend, Lucas Teague, and their dogs.  It was a great day for Teague, as he tagged his very first bear, which was 475 pounds.  Henry had a pretty great day, also, as he tagged a whopper of bear weighing in at 695 pounds!  This was not his first bear, as he shot his first bear at the age of eight or nine, but before this one, his heaviest bear weighed 320 pounds. His most recent one weighed more than twice as much as his personal biggest!
