Wisconsin girl, 11, harvests 718.5 lb black bear

Wisconsin girl, 11, harvests black bear weighing over 700 pounds, is hoping to take state record

 

An 11-year-old girl in Wisconsin may have just set the record for the largest black bear ever harvested in the state.

Naiya Iraci, 11, hadn’t ever even seen a black bear before Sept. 9, let alone shot one. But on that day – the first day of Wisconsin’s bear season – she spotted a massive black bear while hunting with her grandfather Michael Frank, and “dropped [the bear] with one shot,” her grandfather said.

“Proud to say my hunting partner, Naiya… took a #718.5 Black bear yesterday evening,” he wrote the next day on Facebook.

Wow! That’s a big black bear. She looks so small compared to that bear. Of course camera angle plays a part. Regardless, that’s a big bear! :D good for her.

They best not mess with her.  The way I see it she doesn't need a rifle or a bow, she can just "cute them to death".

Her sister got a black bear on the same day but not as large.

North Carolina’s coastal black bears average 50-100 lbs or more than their cousins. The current World Record black bear is an 880 lb. giant from Eastern North Carolina recorded in 1998. There have been more than a dozen bears over 700lbs recorded and dozens more over 600lbs harvested in the coastal region of North Carolina.

 

I'll bet that girl's bear sets a state record. :wub:

The bear continues to grow. Original news item here in Wisconsin listed the weight at 578 pounds.:rolleyes:
