Two black bears that once roamed the fields and mountains of Bradford County were recently accepted into Boone & Crockett's 28th Big Game Awards program. The largest of the two was taken in Ulster Township in 2011 by Jeff Fassett of Ulster. Jeff's bear scored 21-11/16 and its estimated live weight (ELW) was 638 lbs. making it the heaviest bear in our records. The previous record was a 617 lb. bruin taken by Kelly Devine in Orwell Township. Of the 763 entries in the 2013 PA Record Book, Jeff's bear ranked No. 60. by skull measurement.

The second B&C entry was taken in 2011 in Asylum Township by Matt Santiago of Towanda. That skull measured 21-1/16 and its ELW was 473 lbs. Matt's bear currently ranks 10th by skull measurement, and 21st by weight in our records, and No. 164 in the state records.

These bears are awesome trophies that exceeded the 21-0/16 minimum for acceptance into B&C's all-time Records of North American Big Game. 19-0/16 is the minimum for acceptance into our Club and the PA Record Book.

The Bradford County Trophy Deer and Bear Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to measuring, keeping records of, and bringing to public attention the outstanding deer and bears taken in Bradford County each year. As one of the top trophy producers and one of the top big game harvest counties in Pennsylvania, Bradford County is rich in deer and bear hunting traditions.


To celebrate this pastime, the Club hosts an annual Big Game Awards Banquet to display the most notable specimens, and acknowledge those hunters who were fortunate enough to bag a Record Book animal.


Many large specimens are taken in Bradford County each year that also qualify for the State and National Record Books, and our efforts to measure and keep records of these big game animals provides a service to hunters, a tribute to the animals, and a lasting expression of our hunting heritage.
