RAYBURN TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A hunter from our area bagged one of the biggest bears taken during this year’s season in Pennsylvania. It was 600 pounds and seven-feet tall.
“I would have taken a small one for my first one, but I can’t complain about a 600-pounder,” said 25-year-old Bo Bowser, of Rayburn Township in Armstrong County.
He grew up in a hunting family and last week after 13 years of trying, he bagged his first bear in Valley Township.
“He was down by a creek, so it was nice and loud,” said Bowser. “I was able to sneak up on him.”
When the bear turned around and looked at him, Bowser’s reaction was: “Whoa!”
