Pike County Man Bags Black Bear

Last December, Kentucky held its first legal bear hunt in 100 years, but bad weather conditions left hunters empty-handed. State officials say, on Saturday, Danny Smith of Phelps in Pike County claimed the first legally harvested black bear in the modern era when he shot a 265-pound male about five hours into his hunt during Kentucky’s two-day legal hunt. State Fish and Wildlife officials say a 280-pound bear was taken on Sunday in Harlan County. Kentucky also recorded its first-ever bear attack over the summer when a hiker in the Red River Gorge area was mauled by a black bear.
