Since I've received multiple copies, there seems to be popular demand to post Rep. Nate Bell of Mena posing with his kill this week on a bear hunt.

Bell commented yesterday on Facebook about the hunt:

A bear hunting expert told me this evening that he believes successful still hunting for black bear on national forest is the most difficult big game hunt in Arkansas. I don't know if that's right but it kinda made my day and the hunt was definitely physically demanding and a test of woodscraft.

More here. Before anyone starts — he says he plans to eat the meat and preserve the hide.

(For those too young to get it, the headline channels my favorite song as a four-year-old, "The Ballad of Davy Crockett." …. Born on a mountain top in Tennessee, greenest state in the land of the free. raised in the woods so's he knew every tree, killed him a b'ar, when he was only three…..)
