SEABECK -- A black bear killed by a hunter near Seabeck weighed nearly 600 pounds.
Fish and Wildlife Department Sgt. Ted Jackson says the bear was unusually large for the area.
It was shot Oct. 12 by Dennis Durbin of Seabeck as he was deer hunting with his uncle Dan Durban.
The bear was over 7 feet from nose to tail.
The Kitsap Sun reports the Durbins had 368 pounds of meat processed into sausage and bear jerky.

Yes. The bigger, the tougher, and more likely a very gamey taste. ..

my older brother talked about one of his friends killing a 700 pounder in Washington state back in the early 50's...with a 300 Savage I think

The coastal Pacific Northwest is awsome bear habitat. Tons of graze and berrys, and fish where we haven't buggered that up yet.. they get big. Shockey of the hunt magazine fame guides the north island up here and gets a lot of black bears over 8 feet. I've seen a lot of big ones myself but I haven't bothered hunting them. I may do some day but I'd go the other way and find a healhy high country 2 or 3 yr old berry bear no where near a salmon crick. (Not a diner of rotton fish) ;)

I'd like to see a bear (safey) in the woods but not interested in killing one. Maybe tag along on someone else's hunt and sit and offer advice while he cleans the thing
