through the stream. Then all went quiet.
After processing what had just transpired, and confident he'd just taken his
first bear with archery gear, Jason called
Ande and told her he'd just shot a bear.
She asked how big.
"Real big," he replied.
Ande said she and her dad would be
right there.
Jason packed up his gear, exited the
tree stand and waited. When Ande and
Bob reached him, they easily picked up
an ample blood trail, churned-up leaves
and broken laurel branches that painted a
clear picture of where the bear had gone.
The laurel was thick enough in places,
however, that the three needed to crawl on
hands and knees to get through it. But as
they crested a small knoll, Jason spotted
the downed bear. Ironically, it was lying
10 yards from where Ande's bear had
been recovered.
There was a noticeable difference in
size, however.
"I could not believe what I was looking
at," Jason said. "I couldn't get over the
sheer size of the bear. I wondered how
we would get it out."
Ande said Jason usually is reserved
and tends not to show his emotions; not
the moment he found this bear, though.
"He laid his hand on the bear's head
and realized he had something special,"
she said. "I told Jason the bear was his
reward for putting me first by sacrificing
his hunting time for my success."
Jason called a friend, who showed up
with two others. All would help to get the
bear to a spot where they could reach it
with a quad. It was a struggle for the five
to heave the bear onto the quad's rack, but
they did it, and got the bear to the truck.
Jason took the bear to the check station
at the Game Commission's Southeast
Region Office in Reading. The dressed

male weighed 541 pounds. Its live weight
was estimated at 638 pounds.
After cleaning the bear's large skull
with beetles, Jason's taxidermist recommended he have the skull officially scored
after a 60-day drying period.
At 22-9/16 inches, Jason's bear is a
new No. 1 among only 36 entries in the
bear archery category in Pennsylvania's
records. It ties 13th largest in the state
among all bear harvests.
Jason said taking a record-book bear at
this stage of his life is bittersweet.
"I have accomplished something most
people can only dream about, but I may
never top this," he said.
Meanwhile, Ande said the 2017 season
is one that will never be forgotten.
"It's not just about Jason harvesting
a record-book bear, although that is an
amazing accomplishment," she said.
"It was about the harvests we shared
together."
Yes, a hunting couple is a happy
couple.
