The biggest bear GON has heard about so far this season was taken by Danny Taylor, of Ailey. He killed a 528-lb. south Georgia bear in Clinch County on Sept. 27 while on a dog hunt.

“I was observing a planted pine field when I noticed a pine sapling move,” said Danny. “Then I spotted the bear at about 30 yards. I shot him with a 20-gauge slug.”

The big bear went down but got back up and ran past Danny, who was able to get another shot on the bear.

“He ran for a total of 162 yards,” said Danny.

At press time, Danny’s giant bear was No. 12 on GON’s Georgia’s Biggest Bears list.
