Chris Weikert is show with his 82-pound bear he got in McKean County on Saturday, Nov. 19. A great start to the opening of bear season was shown by the 138 total bears that were checked in at the check-in station at the Mt. Jewett Fire Hall the first two days. John Dzemyan from Pennsylvania Game Commission said that 84 were taken from McKean County, 43 from Elk County and the remainder from Cameron, Potter and surrounding counties. The biggest bear brought in tipped the scales at 392 pounds. The smallest was 42 pounds. "Most of the bear were found to be in fields where there were beechnuts, corn or apples," Dzemyan said.
