Largest hunter-taken grizzly bear entered into Boone and Crocket records

Posted May 7, 2014 by muzzlevelocity in Hunting

An Alaskan grizzly bear taken by hunter in 2013 will enter the record books as the second largest grizzly known to have existed and the largest grizzly bear ever taken by a hunter. According to a recent Boone and Crockett news release:

“The big bruin, taken in 2013 near Fairbanks, Alaska, scores 27-6/16. It missed the World’s Record mark by 7/16 of an inch but landed a spot as the second-largest grizzly ever recorded. The reigning World’s Record is a skull found in Alaska in 1976.

Bears are scored based on skull length and width measurements.”
