By the article description, I'm thinking SGL 135 might be it? (SGL 91 and 127 would be on my list as well)

Sounds like lots of bear chili for him this winter!

Okay, so am I the only one that got distracted by the fact that his last name is Beavers and he works for the family logging business? Buahahahaha!

My brother's girlfriend is from up that way, huge surprise but her family knows the guy.  Her brother and dad are pretty big into hunting so it fits.

Crazy how big that things head is... good lord.

Many here probably don't understand the banana connection. All I can say is " Harry, it sucks!"

See this video if you care to understand.

I know him and my younger brother was his best friend in HS.  He just delivered 6 cords of logs to my older brother in Aug.  I grew up about 4 miles from where he shot it, and currently live about 6 miles from there.  Look for the intersection of SR307 and SR435 in Gouldsboro, Pa.  BTW, only about 8-10 miles from Pinchot Trails
