Bittner Bags Bear; Gets "Triple Crown"

Scott Bittner's annual Elk County bear hunt with his friends and family resulted in the first bear of his hunting career on November 21. Here's a picture of Tony Retassie and Scott (right) that ran in the Somerset Daily American.

Scott had already shot a turkey earlier in the season, so the buck he got on the last day of the season made for the rare "triple crown" for a Pennsylvania hunter, a turkey, a buck and a bear in the same hunting season.
