I have been reading the articles in local newspapers (Centre Daily Times, Lock Haven Express et. al.) about Devon Woolfolk, who killed a 500 bear while archery hunting on Oct. 31st in Rice Township — wherever that is. The bear weighed in at 502 pounds, according to the articles and this “made a memory he’ll never forget.” The article also stated that he (Devon Woolfolk) made his grandfather proud. The truth is that an animal has no chance in front of a hunter armed with a compound bow or a gun. Devon (and others) should take his knife and go in the wild and kill a bear with his own hands. That would make him (and others) a real hunter. Until then, as a hunter he (and others) is nothing more than a coward.
